This is the second book in the Heart of the Rockies series. This book highlights Shiloh Wainwright, who has accepted a position as a school teacher at the White River Indian Agency in northwestern Colorado. But the struggles between the Ute Indians and the US Government put Shiloh and the others working at the Agency in a very tough place, they have literally become pawns in a chess game. Not only that, but Shiloh has come face to face with a childhood friend, a Ute Indian she hasn't seen in 9 years. Several complications threaten their relationship and her future with the Agency. Will Shiloh be able overcome all these challenges and accomplish her original goal of teaching the children?
This was a decently good book that I enjoyed reading, but certainly not a favorite of mine. I liked the challenges Shiloh faced and thought the circumstances were historically accurate with some literary license taken. But the book didn't just grab and hold my attention.
I give this book 4 stars.
I received this book from Revell for the purpose of this review.
