After spending nine years as a missionary in Africa and losing his wife to illness, Joshua Norton is exhausted, emotionally and physically. He returns home to the frontier Montana town of Sweetwater Springs with his estranged nine-year-old son in tow, hoping to rebuild his relationship with the boy.
Meanwhile, New Orleans resident Delia Fortier plots to escape the terrible fate her mother has planned for her: becoming the mistress of a cruel, powerful politician. The mixed-race secret daughter of a wealthy Creole businessman, Delia boldly seeks help from her father’s family. Although the rest of the family spurns her, her father is delighted to learn of Delia’s existence and offers her an opportunity: travel west with him, pretending to be his legitimate daughter.
When Joshua and Delia meet, their intense attraction is undeniable. But will Delia’s secret stand in the way of their love? Or will prejudice destroy their future…and their lives?
A stirring, sweeping frontier romance, Glorious Montana Sky is the fourth title in the bestselling series that has enchanted readers.
I like this series and learning about life in Montana in the late 1800’s. This is only the second book of the series I have read, however I would like to read more. These books easily stand alone and do not need to be read as part of the series. They are clean and uplifting with strong characters that I enjoy getting to know.
In Glorious Montana Sky we meet Joshua and his son Micah as they are returning from a mission in Africa. I liked this because these are not the type of characters we typically find in this time period. When they meet Delia their lives changes for the better. I love what a strong character she is, especially given the circumstances she comes out of. The story is beautifully told and leaves me wanting to read more of this series.
