A Love Forbidden by Kathleen Morgan (Heart Of The Rockies Series)

A Love Forbidden is about a young woman named Shiloh who has a heart for the Ute people. Shiloh has been drawn to them from a very young age, but yet she is a white woman. Not exactly one of the People. (That is the correct term for those are Native American, known as Indians for a very long time.)

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.


A Love Forbidden by Kathleen MorganAbout the book: 
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.
The new job, however, 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 the unrealistic demands of the US government.
Her unexpected encounter with Jesse Blackwater, an embittered half-breed Ute and childhood friend, only complicates matters as they battle their growing feelings for each other amidst the spiraling tensions threatening to explode into a catastrophic Indian uprising.
