About the Book

Just a few days after she gives birth alone in the Northwoods, a recently widowed young Ojibwe 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. (Goodreads)

My Review

 Honestly I was not expecting much out of this book, I just figured it would be like many of the other books I have read. Much to my delight this turned out to be a fantastic read! Definitely one of the best books I have read this year. The author took me on a historical journey and right when I thought how the book would end she changed it's direction. The history of the Native American culture in this book is incredible, the details, and the characters are full of depth and intrigued me. I loved Moon Song and Skypilot and how they worked together when they ended up in the wilderness. 
This is a great historical fiction read, I highly recommend!!
