Under A Blackberry Moon

Under A Blackberry Moon by Serena B Miller

            I won this book in a contest from Goodreads, first time I have won anything like it. The book is so good I've read it twice now. And that's saying a lot. Most of the time if I want to read it again, I put in on a shelf in my library and read many years later.
            Moonsong is a beautiful Indian woman, that to save her life and the life of her new born infant went though many awful hardships including living with a drunken husband that was killed, giving birth alone, going to a village of white men where she and her baby could be killed, living in the forest after her ship blew up, running from hungry wolves, just to name of few.
            She father deserted she as a child, now she has to learn to trust a white man name Skypilot, and he has to learn in live in a world that meets some where high in the Hurland Mountains.  A beautiful moving love story that will surprise you, make you laugh and cry. You will want to read it again and again. I gave it 5 stars.
