Morning for Dove by Martha Rogers

Synopsis from Goodreads:
When Luke Anderson falls in love with Dove Morris, he is aware of her Native American heritage. What he is not prepared for is the prejudice suddenly exhibited by his parents against Dove. Luke struggles with the feelings until a wildfire on the prairie threatens Morris Ranch. Luke joins the battle to stave off the fire as it approaches and risks his life to save Dove. Will his parents see that love knows no boundaries of race or culture when it is rooted in God's love for His people?

About the Author:
Morning for Dove is Martha Rogers' second novel and is the second in the "Winds Across the Prairie" Series.  Before turning to writing she was a schoolteacher for 36 years.  She has also written non fiction and part of a novella collection.  She live is Houston, Texas with her husband of 46 years.

My thoughts:
I am fairly new to the genre of Christian Fiction in which Morning for Dove falls.  I enjoyed this book in an odd way.  This book evoked a lot of emotion for me. I liked and hated the characters at the same time.  I enjoyed their innocence and passion but got very angry at their ignorance and some of their decisions.

The setting was fantastic.  I could imagine myself walking into the old mercantile in Barton Creek, Oklahoma Territory, or even riding in the buggy out to the Morris ranch.

At first I had trouble with the relationship between Luke and Dove.  He was hung up on another girl until she married another man and notices Dove at the wedding.  Once he sees her he is immediately infatuated.  I have to consider that maybe that is how things were in those times in a small town and your choices were limited.  Once I got over it I liked how their relationship blossomed.  I was often frustrated with some of the prejudices expressed by some of the townsfolk, but felt a renewed sense of community with the support offered by others.

I have not read the first book in the series entitled "Becoming Lucy".  Some points in this story referenced things that happened in Becoming Lucy but there was enough explanation that I wasn't lost.  If I have the opportunity I would definitely pick it up. 

I would recommend this book to anyone who would enjoy and innocent romance. 

Disclosure:  I received a copy of this book from Glass Road Public Relations for participation in their Blog Tour.  This review is my honest opinion of the book.
