Book Rating: 4 Stars
Sensuality: White Heart

Meeting by chance one day on the university campus where Latesha is a student, she and Peter come to know each other through her matchmaker scheme, and then when that falls apart, through Peter's persistence and increasing interest in Latesha, despite their racial differences and stark opposition from their families. This was an interesting, realistic look at an interracial relationship and the complications they might face from family, friends and the community at large. Peter was a strong, courageous and determined character that was impossible to dislike. His quiet, unassuming manner and persistence in trying win over Latesha and her unwelcoming father were inspiring to watch. Latesha was a bit of a frustrating character, unwilling to take a stand or make waves throughout much of the story, but she shined in the end. Sweet story and I liked the way Peter and Latesha's relationship not only impacted them and their families, but their community was forced to see things in a different light as well.
