Revell Publishing Presents: Under a Blackberry Moon by Serena B. Miller
Just a few days after she gives birth alone in the Northwoods, a recently widowed young Chippewa woman stumbles into a nearby lumber camp in search of refuge and sustenance. Come summer, the camp owner sends Skypilot, his most trusted friend, to accompany Moon Song and her baby on the long and treacherous journey back to her people. But when tragedy strikes off the shore of Michigan's Upper Peninsula wilderness, 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 the tough questions must be asked. Will she leave her culture to enter his? Will he leave his world to enter hers? Or will they walk away from a love that seems too complicated to last?
With evocative descriptions of a breathtaking landscape, Under a Blackberry Moon will sweep readers into a wild realm where beauty masks danger and only the truly courageous survive, even as the sweet love story along the way tightly grips their hearts.

I loved this story, and felt I was walking with them. The descriptions of the tundra was so wonderful, and breath taking.
After recovering her health Moon Song is now strong enough to begin her trip home to her people the Chippewas, and Skypilot has chosen to take her back safely. For Skypilot, his feelings for Moon Song become deeper as they travel.
This is one action packed story, it seems there is a disaster around each corner, and when things start to calm down, it is not to be. Loved how God has his hand placed on them. Also who couldn't love that baby...so good, never cries. There is also a lot of heartache and some unnecessary loss of life.
The luck of being stranded with a smart Indian woman, her survival skills amazed me. She sure had a lot of energy. This is a story not to be missed, we learn that some of the Indian beliefs are the same as Christian, but will Moon Song accept Jesus? Skypilot needs a wife, but cannot be unequally yoked.
Come along on this great adventure, you sure won't be disappointed!
