REVIEW: A Love Forbidden by Kathleen Morgan

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Kathleen Morgan and her publisher for sending me a copy of "A Love Forbidden" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

Kathleen Morgan’s “A Love Forbidden” is the touching story of Shiloh Wainright and Jesse Blackwater, childhood friends who lost track of each other when Jesse left the Wainright ranch. The two are reunited nine years later when Shiloh accepts a position with an Indian Agency as a teacher to the Ute children in the area. Jesse knows that tensions are high in the community, and when he sees Shiloh, he can think of nothing but getting her to safety.

This beautiful love story is set in the majestic Rockies in the 1800s. The incredible backdrop lends itself to the imagination of the difficulty of life for both whites and Indians at that time. This novel gave me a new appreciation of the value of sacrifice and forgiveness. This is an incredible book that showcases both white and Ute culture in such a way that entertains and educates. Kathleen Morgan has done her homework, and has a gift for painting an amazing panoramic picture of Christian and non-Christian life.
