Morning for Dove...Review

About the book:
When Luke Anderson falls in love with Dove Morris, he is aware of her Native American heritage. What he is not prepared for is the prejudice suddenly exhibited by his parents against Dove. Luke struggles with the feelings until a wildfire on the prairie threatens Morris Ranch.

As Luke joins the battle to stave off the fire as it approaches and risks his life to save Dove. Will his parents see that love knows no boundaries of race or culture when it is rooted in God's love for His people?

Book 2 of the Winds Across the Prairie series, I enjoyed this one much more than I did the first book, Becoming Lucy. Dove and Luke were introduced in the first novel and their story continues here. Dove and her family are no strangers to prejudice and judgments because of their Cherokee heritage. While most people in the town of Barton Creek accept them, Luke's mother, Bea Anderson cannot because her past experience with raiding Indians has closed her heart to acceptance and forgiveness.

The road to true love is never easy and as Luke and Dove deal with the different obstacles put in their path, their love grows stronger. The Haynes family, Aunt Clara, and Jake and Lucy Starnes make an appearance here, as do the evil Fowlers who bring trouble at every turn. With themes of love, faith and forgiveness, this is a compelling story and one I thoroughly enjoyed. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
