The ways of the Ute are not the ways of the White Man. That can be extremly different in some areas where God, or Creator is concerned. In her work and desire to reach out to the children of the Ute People, Shiloh soon finds Jesse, a "half-breed" who she loved and adored from their childhood friendship. Frankly, Shiloh has always really loved Jesse, but is he now a man she can love forever? The White Man is already harassing and waging war on the People of this area. How can two people who love each other survive wars between their kin and kindred and differences in beliefs and customs?
A Love Forbidden was a nice read. I liked Shiloh, she was just strong enough to maintain her ground and her Faith with out being cruel when she could have been. The People were treated with respect in this book, and that goes a long way with me.
Moved by the desire for adventure and a yearning to help the Ute Indians, twenty-year-old Shiloh Wainright impulsively accepts a teaching position at the White River Indian Agency in northwestern Colorado.
