Could have imagined Racial tensions in the city hit a breaking point and arson hits close to home By the time the time there is an outbreak of the plague in Chinatown it seems as if all the darkest parts of the city will be revealed at once Margaret and Ezra are thrown together in a common cause but will their secrets destroy the love that is growing between them A story of faith honor and forgiveness This is the second book in the Colors of Faith a Christian historical romance series by Virginia Carmichael The first All the Blue of Heaven was published February 2013. This faith based historical romance takes place in San Francisco just following the earthuake and fire of 1906 so it held special interest for me since I was born and raised in San Francisco myselfMargaret Gilbert is the privileged youngest daughter of the wealthy magnate who owns the Southern Pacific railroad but her heart is not in fashion high society or the idle pleasure of the rich She is burdened by the plight of the Chinese coolies whose backs the railroads are being built upon They are terribly mistreated by the labor companies who hold them like slaves and barter them back and forth like commodities Is Margaret s father aware of their plight or is he complicit in the scandalEzra Pendleton owns and manages one of the growing newspapers in the city and Margaret desperately wants someone with a voice to enlighten the citizens of San Francisco to the injustices of the despised Chinese immigrant workers Risking life and limb Margaret gathers information throughout Chinatown late at night risking the retaliation of the infamous Six companies who hold the Chinese coolies captiveInitially Margaret slips articles on the illegal activities under a the false name of Josiah to Ezra who thinks she is a male activist Gradually strong romantic feelings emerge between the two which complicate the relationship as Margaret seeks to keep her real identity a secret What would happen if her father discovered she was possibly working against his interests How would Ezra react to her deception The story is told with colorful historical detail and it is laden with hair raising danger suspense and yes some appropriate but wild humor For instance without delving into spoilers Margaret sends a note to her family telling them she is staying in a Catholic convent due to her exposure to a plague outbreak in Chinatown Not knowing the details the responses from her family as to why she is there are downright hilariousI ve just scratched the surface of this tale but there is much much within its pages not the least being the Godly divine appointments that are woven throughout this gritty but wholesome romance Highly recommended You bet
