Publisher's Description

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.

    It took years & literally hundreds of books to believe I could call an author my favorite. Then I met Laura. Her kindred-spirit writing reaches deeper into my soul every time we take another journey together. Lauras heroines stir desires we have forgotten, believe we dont deserve, or havent yet discovered within ourselves. A Moonbow Nights Tempe Tucker lived up to her legacy. Tempes staggering grief reminds us of the hemorrhaging blow sustained when we lose what mightve been. This kind of hopelessness hollows us out so thoroughly that we risk becoming only a brittle husk of our former selves. When Sion entered her world, Tempe had been bound to such life-draining agony for so long it had become part of her. Could she muster the strength to reach for a slender filament of hope, leaving the past buried? Remaining in this world meant resisting the call of her beloved; she could almost feel James waiting just beyond the gossamer veil in that undeniable sanctuary of eternity. Yet, the nudge of Sions larger than life presence awakened something in Tempe. Then, the sting of his coming and going kept her praying and pondering. Could God still have a future for her, or was she destined to endure continual heartache? Tempes mix of tender strength & quiet determination showcased the amazing complexity of our countrys pioneer women. Such an extraordinary leading lady deserves an exceptional hero. Sion met the challenge by embodying those rare qualities that make a man honorable, dependable, and worthy of respect. The appeal deepened as the story revealed his humanity, humility, and the regret he suffered because of own tragic loss. Sion wanted to offer Tempe another chance to love, but the frontier wilderness offers no promise of tomorrow. When both of their lives are threatened, will he even get the opportunity to decide? Lauras stories are always full-bodied, never resting completely on the shoulders of her main characters. This colorful & interesting cast added depth without minimizing the resonance & beauty of the primary story. You might be tempted to rush through, but savoring each delicious detail will require a more lingering pace. Why? Because like an afternoon spent with a treasured friend, you just cannot bear for this lovely story to end.

    A Moonbow Night has all the elements that a Laura Frantz novel is known for: exquisite writing, where the reader feels they are right there in the wilderness along the characters; adventure; love and loss; and memorable, complex characters. Sion Morgan is a very complex man, a surveyor of the Kentucke territory, a leader of a small group of men tasked for the job. He is hardened by loss and the very nature of his work. It is interesting to see the change in him as he is drawn to Temperance Tucker, known as Tempe. She is every inch a frontier woman at home in the woods and very resourceful, unaware of her beauty, full of the loss four years earlier of her betrothed, James. She feels drawn to him too, really before she even likes him. There are many hardships of various kinds to endure before the book concludes. If you love great historical fiction, A Moonbow Night is sure to please. It is a story I'll remember.

    What can I say? Laura Frantz hits another one out of the park. Why do I love Laura's books? Her characters are fresh, interesting, non-stereotypical, likable, and completely believable. They aren't perfect, they aren't two-dimensional, they are deep, rounded, and fascinating. Her settings are vivid. You journey with her characters, walking with them, seeing and touching and smelling what's all around them. You don't read one of Laura's books, you experience it. I can't quite put "A Moonbow Night" above my ultimate favorite of hers, "Courting Morrow Little." But it's close. Very close. Read it.

    This book did take me a little while to get intoit didnt help that I wasnt feeling very well around the time I was reading it, so that could be the reason for it taking a little longer for me to get invested into the story. But once the story started to pick up, I was enjoying it a lot more :) I actually didnt really mind that it was slower-paced after a little while. I liked just getting to learn gradually about each of the characters past

    This book alternated between two points of viewTempe Tucker and Sion Morgan. I really love it when books have switching points of view because I feel like you get to learn more about the characters that way! :) Some of my favorites were Tempe, Nate, and LucianSion was just an okay character to me, not one of my favorites, but still pretty good. Some I didnt care for were August Tucker, Paige, and Cornelius.

    I wish I could write a better review and be a little more detailed with what I liked/disliked, but it has been a couple of weeks since I have read this so it is a little harder to recall everythingI will try in future though to write my reviews as soon as I finish the book :)

    I have to admit that I needed to read this story twice as I missed so much of the rich detail my first time through. "A Moonbow Night" is a captivating and riveting journey into the Cumberland region of Kentucke during the time of Daniel Boone. So much rich history that I knew absolutely nothing about! Google Search got a workout from me (smile), with the various fruits, plants, terms and such I had not heard of before. Fascinating.

    Tempe Tucker can do just about anything she sets her mind to. She's brave and fiercely loyal, and nursing a deep heartache that she will likely take to her grave. She knows the woods of Kentucke like the back of her hand and can shoot better than most. Scion Morgan is a land surveyor whose aim is to lead his team through the wilderness to blaze a trail for future settlers, collect on his land grants and move on. Scion carries his own burdens of the heart that haunt him day and night. As Tempe finds herself the unlikely guide for Scion and his team, they begin to form a deep bond and respect that neither one was expecting.

    Raw and honest, there is a heart-wrenching sweetness to this story that will dig in and not let go of you for awhile. Such was the case for this avid historical fiction reader!
