Book Blog Tour Stop - Under A Blackberry Moon by Serena B. Miller

About The Book:

Which wilderness is more treacherous--the one she must cross to find her home . . . or the one she must traverse to find love?

Just a few days after she gave birth alone in the northwoods, a recently widowed young Chippewa woman stumbled into a nearby lumber camp in search of refuge from the winter snows. Come summer, it is clear that Moon Song cannot stay among the rough-and-tumble world of white lumbermen, and so the camp owner sends Skypilot, his most trusted friend, to accompany her on the long and treacherous journey back to her people.

But when tragedy strikes off the shore of Lake Superior, Moon Song and Skypilot must depend on each other for survival. With every step they take into the forbidding woods, they are drawn closer together, until it seems the unanswerable questions must be asked. Can she leave her culture to enter his? Can he leave his world to enter hers? Or will they simply walk away from a love that seems too complicated to last?

Get swept into a wild realm where beauty masks danger and only the truly courageous survive in a story that will grip your heart and your imagination.

My Thoughts:

I was immediately pulled into this gentle romantic story of a lovely Chippewa woman and the brave lumberman/minister who fights differing cultures and prejudice for her love. Author Serena Miller does a wonderful job of telling this fascinating story and readers are sure to be enthralled with both the love story and the history behind it.

"Under A Blackberry Moon" is the second book in Miller's Michigan historical series, and I'm going to go back and pick up on the story with "The Measure of Katie Calloway."  However, this book can be read as a "stand alone" read with plenty of back-story to catch readers up on the action and characters!

If you like historical fiction and gentle, inspirational romance, this is a great book for you to try!
