A Love Forbidden by Kathleen Morgan ~ Review

A Love Forbidden: A NovelLucie's Review: A book that grew on me.

Shiloh Wainright comes to The White River Indian Agency with high hopes of being able to make a difference in the lives of the Ute Indians, as a school teacher. But conflicts quickly arise, leaving Shiloh stuck in the middle.
Jesse Blackwater is a man caught between two worlds, left bitter by his past.
History swirls and conflicts rise, will Shiloh and Jesse be able to overcome the trials set before them?

Filled with drama, and lots of tough situations. There were times when I wasn't sure if they were going to find a way out!  I also really liked how historical this book was, based on true happenings, and at the same time that made it a bit tough to read because some parts were rather devastating.

There was alot going on in just one book! Yet at the same time I found it a bit hard to really connect with the characters, because alot of things that really showed us who the characters were happened in the past, bu that might just be me personally. I really admired Shiloh, though, and how she really took the time and effort to make her faith a priority, and she really did put Jesus first in her life, and chose to make the best out of a bad situation.

I think was really what made this book unique was how broadly the cultural lines were drawn, it great poignancy. I would say that this book is more of a historical than a romance, so I think that would be a great thing to know before reading it. Faced with inner and outer struggles, Jesse and Shiloh, fight back with courage, faith and forgiveness. One of the things I will say is that the more I thought about this book after I had finished it, the more it grew on me. A very well done book, indeed. Thanks!
