Have you ever read a book that touches you so deeply you think about it for days? Have you ever felt yourself literally falling in love with the hero and heroine as you read the book? Have you ever read a book that you didn't want to end? Indigo is one of those books for me.
Galen ends up at Hester's house, which is a stop on the Underground Railroad, beaten, bruised and near death. Hester hides him until he is healthy enough to move on. The chemistry and bond between ladies man Galen and spinster Hester is unmistakable from the start, yet except for a stolen knock your socks off kiss, they don't act on it, for one Galen was in no physical shape for anything and Hester was engaged. When Galen is healed, he leaves Hester's sanctuary to return to New Orleans. They find they cannot stop thinking about each other. Hester resigns herself to never seeing Galen again and accepting that she will end up in a loveless, passionless marriage.
Galen returns to Whittaker to find the traitor and bring them to justice, upon his return he starts his wooing of Hester and boy is it a wooing. Have I mentioned I LOVE Galen? Hester puts up a good fight, determined they can't be together because of their social differences, but she has a hard time resisting Galen. The back and forth banter and romance between Galen and Hester is some of the best I have read. The real world intrudes, citizens of Whittaker are being illegally returned to the South as escaped slaves, Galen, his friends and Hester have to find out who the traitor is and stop this nightmare. The suspense kept me guessing, it took me about 85% of the book to figure out who the traitor actually was. The events leading up to and the revelation of the traitor were heartbreaking for Hester and emotional to read. After the revelation, we get to see more of Galen, Hester and hear what happens to some major players in the story. Ms. Jenkins ends Indigo with a sweet emotional ending, that just reinforces how strong the love between Hester and Galen is. An ending that goes up there as one of my favorite endings of all time.
You won't find a more perfect Hero than Galen, sexy, dominant, caring, smart and oh so passionate. Galen's been around the world, he knows how to please women. He never expected to be knocked sideways by his feelings for Hester. I can't say enough about how much I love how hard Galen fell and how he treated Hester. The determination that she accept his nickname of Indigo, the things he did for her, the way he showed her how special she was and his determination that she would marry him, MELT ME. Hester, what an amazing heroine, I found myself falling just as much in love with her as I did Galen. She is strong, determined, selfless, innocent and sassy.
In addition to Hester and Galen, Indigo has a secondary cast that are endearing, funny and worthy of their own stories. Maxi and Raymond hold special places in my heart also. I have only read two books by Ms. Jenkins, I will be looking up more titles to see if Raymond and his brothers get their own stories. I would love to return to Whittaker and see more if it's residents also.
Indigo is an exceptional historical romance full of love, suspense, passion, humor, friendship, hope and faith. Indigo is a romance that transcends time and race, I strongly recommend it to all lovers of romance.
Ms. Jenkins not only pens a beautiful romance between Galen and Hester, she includes little known facts about the Underground Railroad and the people who sacrificed so much for other's freedom. As I read Indigo, I couldn't help getting mad about the lack of attention given to Abolition, the Underground Railroad and it's heroes in our educational system's US History curriculum. One of many interesting facts I learned while reading Indigo was the use of the black lawn jockey yard decorations by the Underground Railroad. In my ignorance I have always cringed when I saw a black lawn jockey in someone's yard, for some reason they seemed, I guess a little disrespectful to the African American race. After reading Indigo, I now know what a important part they played in the Underground Railroad and would proudly put one in my yard in honor of the Underground Railroad. This is the second book I have read by Ms. Jenkins and it is just as magical, thought provoking and wonderful as the first.
Indigo was a touching romance novel. Ms. Jenkins blends history, action, and true love. I learned so many things about slavery that I never knew before, and it was all captivating. Ms. Jenkins has a way of dispersing the information within the story that gives the novel a greater depth.
The romance between Galen and Hester was classic. The story was told in such a way that I really wanted them to get together, but because of the circumstances I wasn't sure if they would end up together (even though I knew that they would be). Their love was beautiful to read about. Ms Jenkins can weave a romantic scene (translate as sex) with such fluid sensuality that it almost reads like poetry.
I will shout it out to the world (in the privacy of my home of course) that I am in love with Beverly Jenkins' writing and will definitely be ordering and reading more from her.
