Sensuality: White Heart
Morrow, heartsore from the massacre of her mother and baby sister as well as the capture of her older brother, by the Shawnee when she was a young child, she finds it difficult to forgive the Shawnee, and Red Shirt by association, as her father has done. Her father’s failing health hastens her need to marry, but Morrow finds her choice of suitors difficult and it comes just as so many other factors are intruding and she is struggling with her feelings toward the Shawnee. I found the tone of this story as contemplative and easy as the first book, the romance sneaking up on the characters by slow delicious degrees. I loved the character of Red Shirt, a strong, intuitive man of quiet intelligence and ease. This story includes a glimpse of famed frontiersman, Ezekial Click, and mention of his daughter, Lael, both from Frantz’s first book, The Frontiersman’s Daughter. I felt this book fulfilled my musings about what might have been if Lael had ended up with Captain Jack, and I am grateful for that satisfaction.
