A Moonbow Night

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.


My Review

This is my first introduction to this author and her work. I did enjoy this author's writing. Although, I may not have been in love with this book, I would try another book from this author. The author brought to life the countryside of Kentucke. For me I really enjoyed Temperance. She is a tomboy. Yet, she is not afraid to show that she can be just if not better than the men. She has accurate skills as a shooter. It was nice when Temperance shut the men up with her shooting and that Sion did not comment but just let Temperance shine.

Although, try as I might I did not feel the romantic relationship between Sion and Temperance. Yes, by the end of the story they felt like a couple. However, the romantic notions were slow to form and sweet if not mild. I mainly was reading the book for the journey and the beautiful land than I was for the characters.

Unique Outdoor Survival Skills

Don't you find it ironic that even with all this scandalously expensive education, people today know so little?

If they can't even fix their car, how are they supposed to handle a - let's say - long term food shortage?

You can't possibly hope they'd know how to garden and produce their own food, save seeds for next year, and use leaves plowed under to fertilize the soil.

Not to mention trapping, catching, skinning and cooking a rabbit...

These may seem advanced outdoor survival skills now, but back in the days, they were merely called "Living".

Watch this short video now and discover a set of unique and fantastic survival skills used and perfected by our ancestors.

Don't wait for the next crisis to hit and live to regret you had the chance to learn these skills but didn't.

Thanks again.
