They’re from two different worlds. Can love cross the divide?

Moved by a compassionate heart and the desire for adventure, twenty-year-old Shiloh Wainwright impulsively accepts a teaching position at the White River Indian Agency in northwestern Colorado. Eager to use her skills to help improve the lives of Ute Indian children, she looks forward to a fulfilling, independent life on the Colorado frontier.

But her new job isn’t what she imagined it would be, and Shiloh soon finds herself caught in the cross fire between the Utes, their unyielding Indian agent, and a demanding US government. Her unexpected encounter with a half-Ute childhood friend, Jesse Blackwater, only complicates matters as they battle their growing feelings for each other amidst spiraling tensions that threaten to explode into a catastrophic uprising.

Set amongst the wilds of the Colorado Rockies in 1879, this tale from bestselling and award-winning author Kathleen Morgan explores the transformational power of forgiveness, compassion, and God’s healing love with artistry and authenticity.

My Review:
Kathleen Morgan is a superbly talented Christian author. I read A Heart Divided some time back, the first book in the Heart Of The Rockies series, and I knew then that I would have to read all the books in this series. Ms. Morgan takes factual historical elements and blends them with richly created, complex plot lines, tosses in sweet, lovable characters and gives her fans a book that will instantly grab your heart and keep you hanging on until the last page.

Shiloh Wainwright is a sweet and loving character! She accepts a job to be a teacher at the White River Indian Agency, but once there, things aren’t what they seem and her life is about to change. But, it may not be for the better, as she’s placed herself in the middle of a battle between the white and the Ute Indians. What’s more is, she’s face to face with a friend from her past…one who she never forgot, nor does she want to forget.

Jesse Blackwater was Shiloh’s friend when he lived and worked on their ranch. But, he realized along time ago that the Whites and the Indians wouldn’t get along so he left. Now, he’s face to face with the beautiful young Shiloh Wainwright, his only white friend from his childhood. Can he move past the past and make a future with the beautiful young white woman? Or will the battle last forever and leave him alone and fighting for his people?

This is an amazing story of loyalty, faith, forgiveness and trust. This 5 Book worthy addition to Ms. Morgan’s work is stunningly beautiful as it follows the differences and problems among two very different kinds of people. It also shows the power that believing and trusting in God has over any outcome, and that if you follow your heart and listen to the Creator, you can overcome any thing and find love along the way. I am anxiously awaiting the next installment! Great job, Ms. Morgan!
