A Love Forbidden

Author: Kathleen Morgan
Publisher: Revell
May 2012
ISBN: 978-0-8007-1971-5
Genre: Inspirational/historical

Shiloh Wainwright fell in love with a young man who worked on her father’s ranch when she was a young girl. But he was a “half-breed” and after being falsely accused of attacking the boss’ older daughter, he was whipped and sent away. Now, Shiloh is a grown woman and she has a love for Indians. This takes her to an Indian Agency in Colorado. Shiloh hopes to improve the lives of Ute Indian children.

But, her new job isn’t all sunshine and roses. Shiloh soon finds herself caught in the cross-fire between the Utes, their Indian agent, and the US government. Her unexpected encounter with her family’s former employee, Jesse Blackwater, only complicates matters.

As tensions spiral, will Jesse and Shiloh find love? Or will the catastrophic uprising tear them apart?

A LOVE FORBIDDEN is the latest by award winning author, Kathleen Morgan. I was drawn into the story from the very first pages, though my heart broke for Jesse. I had to find out what happened and hoped that Jesse and Shiloh would find a way to be together.

Ms. Morgan is definitely a talented author, and one that I can recommend if you like historical fiction. She takes characters that should be impossible to find common ground, and throws them together. The resulting story is a page-turner. Loosely based on real events—my favorite type of historical. $14.99. 310 pages.
