Sensuality: White Heart
After the death of his wife, Joshua returns from doing missionary work in Africa with his young son, and hopes some time spent in his parents' home in Montana will revitalize him, repair his relationship with his son, and ease the guilt he carries regarding his unhappy marriage; and a striking young woman he meets on the train home seems to help his state of mind, but Delia carries secrets she's ashamed of and she's in constant fear of discovery. Delia's situation provided an interesting look at what an illegitimate mixed-race woman of the time period may have had to face, and it was an interesting combination with a pastor who'd done missionary work in Africa, providing complexities of propriety, differing cultures, personal compatibility and questions of faith. It was a great story and it was fun to see many of the previously introduced characters from both the Montana Sky series and the Mail-Order Brides of the West. Caleb Livingston had a role in this one as well and is just the sort of antagonistic character that you have hope for, despite his faults, and hope to see corrected; hopefully a woman who is up for the job is on the way. I'm most eager to read his story and see him reformed. I also look forward to reading Healing Montana Sky and hope to see it out soon!
