Her wilderness survival skills are without rival.
But her greatest talent is keeping other people's secrets.

After fleeing Virginia, Temperance Tucker and her family established an inn along the Shawnee River. It's a welcome way station for settlers and frontiersmen traveling through the wild Cumberland region of Kentucke--men like Sion Morgan, a Virginia surveyor who arrives at the inn with his crew, looking for an experienced guide.

Though he balks when Tempe is appointed to lead his team through the wilderness, it isn't long before Sion must admit that her abilities may outmatch his own. But can the tenuous tie they are forming survive the dangers waiting just around the bend?

With her signature sweeping style and ability to bring the distant past to vivid life, Laura Frantz beckons you to join her in a land of Indian ambushes, conflicting loyalties, and a tentative love that meanders like a cool mountain stream.
Laura Frantz is one of those authors who I get excited about when she has a new book releasing. Her stories have so much depth and flow and detail. It is hard to not sink into the story and not emerge till you read the last page.

A Moonbow Night is no different from her previous stories with the detail and fantastic characters. Laura is able to bring a time long ago back to life. Tempe is a fun and delightful, fresh character. Her mother and father are big influences in her life and the lives they lead have impacted her and garnered her wisdom in many different areas.

The book starts off with a punch and it keeps moving from there. The way the characters lives intersect is another fun adventure that really kicks off the full story.

Laura's writing is just amazing. You can see and experience what the characters go through. The detail that is described, shows the author's passion for this time. You can tell from the historical detail the amount of work she has put into her stories.

This story is another fantastic addition to her previous books. It is always a joy to dive into the story she has crafted. It's hard to share the best parts, without giving the story away, so I will leave that for you to discover.

Too Read!
