    Temperance Tucker is fleet of foot, a fine shot with a rifle, and knows the eighteenth-century Kentucke territory. Yet, a painful past leaves her emotionally ill-equipped for her present life. She and her family operate the Moonbow Inn, a haven for frontier travelers searching for food and temporary shelter. When Sion Morgan enters, looking for a guide, Tempe has no intention of joining his crew. However, circumstances shortly land Tempe in that exact position and her faith is tested as she hazards frontier dangers, revisits families connected to her past, and grows very fond of Sion. Will Tempe and Sion's budding relationship thrive in the midst of the past pain and the harsh frontier of Kentucke? Find out in A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz.It was a pleasure to read Tempe and Sion's story in A Moonbow Night. This stand alone novel features authentic characters that lingered in my mind for days after I'd finished reading. The characters' struggles made them relatable and their tenacity made them admirable. Frantz used these deeply developed characters and their life journeys to undergird the adventure and romance. A steady plot and beautiful narrative held my attention from the beginning to the end. Frantz's admiration of the early explorers, such as Daniel Boone, is evident, though she also addressed the Native Americans' side of the matter through the character of Raven.I recommend A Moonbow Night to readers who enjoy historical tales of adventure, faith and romance. I've read most of Frantz's novels and this is one of my top three favorites.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher.

    Laura Frantz deftly fulfills my inner need for accurate, exciting, and detail-oriented Christian historical fiction. Frantz's characters in a Moonbow Night will sate and romance your reading soul as they blaze a breath-taking trail through the Cumberland area of Kentucke and into your heart.Tempe Tucker's family originally had attempted an entrance into the forbidding Kentucke territory alongside Daniel Boone and his family. When disaster strikes, they are forced to start a new life filled with uncertainty and secrets.Sion Morgan is a lawyer turned surveyor, in need of a guide. Tempe, to her chagrin, is offered up as the best. Can Tempe safely guide a motley group of questionable men while guarding her reputation and her heart?What I love most(besides her sweeping saga writing style)is the way Laura uses every character to show us the danger of the times. No one has the luxury of sitting on the fence during the Revolutionary War. England is fanning into flame the Indians' hatred of encroaching settlers. Every character touched my soul as he/she found his or her feet held to the crucible. Each decision would have life-changing results.What I didn't love was the fact maps are only online, a fact I didn't even discover until reading the author's notes at the end. The maps need to be included in the book, because of the great descriptive detail Frantz uses about locations. At very least, I wish the note about online maps had been at the beginning of the book. I am not faulting the author, as this may be a publisher's decision, but I personally lost a lot of reading time unsuccessfully looking for period maps.You haven't read great Christian historical fiction until you've read Laura Frantz. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, but freely left my own review. I have already purchased this book for another.

    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.

    Title: A Moonbow NightAuthor: Laura FrantzPages: 384Year: 2017Publisher: RevellMy rating is 5 out of 5 stars.Fantastic! That is just one of the many positive words I could have chosen to describe this wonderful story. I am a big fan of Laura’s writing and this book just brings that thought home even more. The story is set in the Kentucke territory in 1777. The two main characters are Temperance or Tempe and Sion Morgan. Sion is a surveyor for a company out of England who has been hired to survey the Kentucke territory. Tempe, her mother and brother operate an inn in the middle of nowhere in hostile Indian Territory. Her father, a Patriot, lives close by, but he lives in hiding as he is wanted for killing a surveyor hired by King George in Virginia, which caused the family to flee Virginia and is how the family has ended up in Kentucke.Tempe is extremely knowledgeable about the land, herbs, food, guns, tracking and just about anything necessary to survive in this wilderness. She has a deep appreciation for God’s beautiful land and takes daily rambles to immerse herself in His creation. She is still grieving her fiancé who was killed four years ago by local Indians and at times longs to be with him. Then, Sion Morgan arrives at the inn looking for a guide. Tempe becomes his guide at the insistence of her father. As they set out on their arduous journey, the threat of an Indian attack is a constant worry. The Indians call surveyors “land stealers”, so they have no love lost when they encounter any white people be they surveyors or not. Along the way, Sion and Tempe develop a mutual respect and attraction for each other. Sion has lost his wife in an Indian attack three years ago, so he and Tempe have this type of loss in common.Laura Frantz is passionate about the genre in which she writes and it shows in her detailed and vivid descriptions of the beauty of the land, the lifestyle of the characters and the history of the times. I was so involved in this story that I would have to put the book down to do something only to find myself drawn back to the book as soon as possible. I was riveted as the tension from Indian attack and the relationship between Sion and Tempe as the constant harsh details of life where made alive before my eyes. I liked learning about Kentucke during this time in history as well as what the relationship was between the Indians and the pioneers. I cared about what happened to the characters as I was emotionally vested in the story, which I think is something a good author as the God-given talent to accomplish. There is much more that happens in the story than I’ve mentioned, so please do yourself a favor and pick up this great story and read it for yourself!Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog.

    Being a history lover, I enjoy books set in the past as it gives me some insight as to life during that time period. I enjoyed reading about Temperance Tucker's life and how she was able to defend herself on the Kentucky frontier. I don't know that I could have been as rugged as she was and been able to survive during that time. I enjoyed seeing the story play out between her and Sion and how they learned to get around each other's pasts. I received a copy of this book from the publisher, but the review is my own.

    My thoughts: First of all, I was struck by curiosity about the probability of a "Moonbow" (think.... "rainbow" but at night). So as I began reading Laura Frantz's latest frontier story, I did a bit of research - specifically into the Moonbow in the Kentucky area. Fascinating bit of information and, yes, they do exist!The first pages of A Moonbow Night left me feeling the cold icy sting of a Winter storm in the mountains of Western North Carolina and East Tennessee. As the surveyors trekked through the woods trying to avoid the Indians by being as quiet as possible and not lighting the fire that could warm their feet and cook food that would bring their body temperatures to more normal range, the cold seeped into their very being.It is 1777 and the surveying party of men was surprised to find three women and a man managing an inn of sorts in an isolated part of the wilderness, but they were delighted to partake of the wonderful food and shelter from the elements after being on the trail so long. Frantz is a true-to-the-period author as she writes of happenings, people, and the land of early frontier days in the settlement of America. In this story, the British were inciting the Indians against the westward movement of settlers and particularly surveyors. It simply was not a safe land through which to perilously journey.This is a book of historical Christian fiction that brings the reader a terrific frontier adventure and a sweet romance as it develops between two individuals who have previously experienced great personal loss and who are strong characters.DISCLOSURE: I received a complimentary copy from the publisher to facilitate a review of my personal opinions. I was not compensated for a reward.
