The Suitor

Today I started chapter six with the working title "The Suitor." Daniel, against his better judgment, allows the young Cree woman, Sparkling Eyes, to live with him. Although he finds her attractive and satisfying, he feels guilt and uncomfortable with her presence.

He goes to Edmonton for a few supplies and while at the Hudson's Bay Company store, he meets Geraldine Beauregarde to whom he is immediately attracted and she to him; her mother sees this and berates her daughter and, in a tirade, scolds Daniel.

Obviously, he has fallen in love with this young woman--sort of love at first sight, but already there are obstacles.
