I have read many of Carol Warburton's books and have enjoyed all of them. She is a good writer of historical novels. This book was especially good to me because it was set in the Mormon colonies in Mexico, and I have not read any novels about that. It was interesting the prejudices that the Mormons had for the Mexicans. I would recommend this book to any one that likes a good clean historical love story.-Teresa
Pretty light reading, but it did keep my attention.
The year is 1907, and Matthew Cameron has questions no one in his small Mormon settlement can answer. But answers come fast and furious when a man who looks eerily like Matthew saves him from a deadly attack.
Rafael, the rescuer, may be charming, but he is also a ruthless exploiter. When Matthew refuses to cross a moral line, Rafael begins to destroy all that Matthew holds dear.
Angry and alone--armed only with his unfailing belief in God--Matthew struggles to start a new life. Faced with a disturbing past, along with bitter racism in his new community, Matthew is surprised to find his sole defender is a beautiful, spirited young woman. Against the wishes of everyone around them, Matthew and Sabra begin to fall in love.
When Sabra's life is jeopardized, Matthew must make some final choices: between love and hate, between right and wrong, and between life and death. Carol Warburton, master of LDS historical fiction, delivers a sweeping novel of suspense, adventure, and romance that is sure to keep readers riveted to the end of this unforgettable story.
