Read full description of the books:
I'll begin this review by saying I didn't expect to enjoy the book. I agreed to read it because I joined the Tell Harlequin group and I was given two books to read, this being one of them. I expected it to be dry and boring but I was unexpectedly pleased to find out just how wrong I was.
From the first chapter when Charlotte Porter meets Kody Douglas, I liked them. Both are outcasts but for different reasons. Charlotte's brother and his wife abandoned her to seek a better life during the Great Depression, and they promised to send for her but it looks like they won't. All of her life, she's felt like she has to work hard and be compliant in order to win other people's approval, and her relationship with her brother and his wife only reinforces that. Kody is half-Indian, half-white, so he receives tauting by some people (not all), and he feels like he doesn't belong with the Indians on the reservation or in the white man's world. So he's on his way to Canada to find land where he can spend the rest of his life alone.
These two meet and he feels like he can't leave her waiting for a brother who may not send for her, so he takes her to Favor, South Dakota to his adopted white parents' home where they welcome both of them with open arms. This really was a beautiful and touching love story. Their love developed naturally as they spent time together. Still, he hesitated to believe that she could look beyond his half-breed status to see the man he truly is. I especially enjoyed the playfulness between them and how he snuck in kisses and how she continued to make him feel welcome and loved.
Meanwhile, she tries to connect him with his daughter whom he gave to an Indian couple in hopes she wouldn't face the same prejudices he has had to deal with his entire life. So the moral of this book is that you can't judge a person by the color of their skin but by the quality of their heart.

Read information about the authorLinda Ford grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head—often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted ten and lived (at times, endured) the dream.
Writing first took her to non-fiction human-interest articles for newspapers and eventually a non-fiction book about tuberculosis set in the 1930s and 1940s (Touched By The White Plague). But romance had always been her first love and she turned to writing love stories. She is multi-published in the CBA market.
She lives on a small ranch in Alberta, Canada, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren.
