Sensuality: White Heart
Sarah Jane is on her way to Oregon when her parents fall ill and aren't allowed to continue with the wagon train, the Native American raised white scout, Painted Hands, is the only one willing to stay behind with her, but they are forced to marry before being left on their own. This novella is heavily laced with Christianity and includes things like speaking in tongues and other miracles. The discussion of religion, faith and God is pervasive throughout the story, so be forewarned if that isn't to your liking. This is a sweet romance about a couple thrown together to suffer the hardships of the trail west, but more than that it is a story about strength, courage and faith, the different ways people deal with hardship, and the mindset it takes to see things through. The characters struggles with self-improvement and keeping hope in the face of hardship were inspiring.
