A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz
From the publisher:
On the vast, uncharted Kentucky frontier of the 1770s, Temperance Tucker has learned to be fleet of foot, accurate with her rifle, and silent about the past. But her family secrets complicate her growing attraction to a handsome Virginia land surveyor with a harsh history of his own. Will the hurts and hardships of the past prevent them from a fulfilling future?
Laura Frantz has a way of writing that makes things vivid and real. I admire her writing and enjoy her style of storytelling.
This novel doesn't hold back on the harsh and violent ways of those early frontier times. So be aware of that before you read this book. Also, I did feel it was one-sided about the violence of the Native Americans toward the White settlers--because as history has shown us both were cruel to each other. So I was disappointed in that.
However, knowing that the story is told from white settlers view points you can see how she may have decided to focus on just that.
Those who enjoy great story-telling and the early frontier time period will enjoy this book.
I received this book free from the publishers. All opinions expressed are my own.
