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. When his guide appears, Sion balks. He certainly didn't expect a woman. But it is not long before he must admit that Tempe's skill in the wilderness rivals his own. Still, the tenuous tie they are forming is put to the test as they encounter danger after danger and must rely on each other.
With her signature sweeping style and ability to bring the distant past to vivid life, Laura Frantz beckons readers to join her in a land of Indian ambushes, conflicting loyalties, and a tentative love that meanders like a cool mountain stream.
Laura weaves a story that spellbinds you from the beginning, her attention to detail is rich and vivid. With each sentence you are transported to the 1700's, walking the trails with the surveying party. I could feel the spray from the waterfall and see the lights from the fireflies. I even dreamt I was in Kentucky walking with Tempe, and Scion. I love books that transport me to another place and time, and A Moonbow Night did just that. Scion is a favored hero. He had a special way with Tempe. Tempe was a perfect heroine, her abilities to track and shoot were fun.
We're only eight days into the new year and this book is already on my top reads list for 2017!
This is a must read!!
