A Love Forbidden

All Shiloh Wainright has dreamed of is teaching the Ute Indians, and when she gets the opportunity to move to Northwestern Colorado to teach at the White River Indian Agency, she jumps at the chance. Little does she know, her past will catch up with her as she meets Jesse Blackwater, a young man who once worked on her family’s ranch. As Shiloh and Jesse become closer to one another, tensions arise between the US Government and the Ute Indians. Jesse is caught between his loyalty to the Ute Indians and Shiloh, while Shiloh is torn between her love for Jesse and the U.S. Soldiers who are battling the Indians. Shiloh is a very likable character. She is strong in her faith and feels great connection to her family, yet she does not let their desires run her life. When she felt it was her place to teach the Ute Indians, she followed her heart. I really liked the relationship between her and Jesse. Although they came from two entirely different backgrounds, they were still able to make their relationship work. You can tell through the book that Jesse really cares for Shiloh and only wants what is best for her. I also liked the focus on forgiveness in this book. Shiloh must forgive the Indians for their treatment of her, while Jesse must forgive himself for his actions in the past and also the US Government for their treatment of the Indians. I am really glad I read the second book in the Heart of the Rockies Series by Kathleen Morgan. I read the first book in the series, and I was excited to read about another Wainright sibling. A Love Forbidden can easily be enjoyed by someone who has not read the first book in the series. I cannot wait to learn more about the Wainrights in future books!!
