Kara | 11 comments My Mom is trying to remember a book that she is pretty certain has the word Dove in the title. It is set in the 1800s. It is about a young girl who does not realize she is bi-racial because her father took her to the wilderness to raise her. He is a trapper or something like that. She read it in the 2000s but does not know how old it was.


Her father dies when she is a teen and a young man finds her and befriends her and then falls in love with her. The young man is a sought-after beau in town with several women trying to marry their daughters off to him, but when he finds out the young bi-racial girl is pregnant, he leaves with her to go further west.

Thanks for any ideas!

Was the biracial MC part black? Part Native American?

Kara | 11 comments It was not romance genre. The girl was part black. Her mother had been a cabaret dancer or something like that. When the mother died, the father took the little girl away to live in the woods where she grew up alone. Mom says she thinks the cover was a light turquoise color. She bought it by mistake at a library book sale thinking she was buying "Good Morning, Miss Dove" by Frances Gray Patton, so the title was something like that, with Dove in it.

You can "bump" your thread every month or so. This pushes your thread back to the top of the folder instead of languishing here on page 196 from six months ago where fewer eyes will see it. Get back in the game! Bump!
You can do this by typing a new comment at the end of the thread, or even by typing the word "bump."
