I received this book in exchange for my review. The following post contains advertisement.
Get swept into a wild realm where beauty masks danger and only the truly courageous survive in a story that will grip your heart and your imagination
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

I was blessed with this book by Revell Publishing in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not required to give a positive review.
What did I think?
If the title of this book doesn't grab you, then the cover certainly will. I, myself, have always had a fascination with how the Indians got by living off the land. And this book has alot to teach.  I thoroughly enjoyed this story about Moon Song and her child. After loosing her husband on a journey South, she managed to make it to a lumber camp with her young baby. She spent many months there, but it was time to return home to her people. Skypilot went along to accompany  her on the journey and make sure she made it safely. Unknown to him, she would actually be the one ensuring his safety after a freak accident leaves them to fend for themselves in the wilderness.  Skypilot has always respected Moon Song, but thought of her more as a "child". Now, watching her in her own environment changes his perspective of her and the native people. He can't help but find himself falling in love. Nevertheless, there seem to be too many obstacles to overcome; not just the fact that they are from two completely different cultures, but Moon Song is not a Christian and that is very important to Skypilot. Will they be able to work thorough their differences and give in to love, or does God have other plans for them. The twists and turns in this book will keep you hooked and you will have to keep reading to find out how this story ends! I highly recommend this novel! It was exciting and a joy to read. This was my first time reading Serena Miller, but I will be back for more!
