This is a must read for all who enjoy historical romances. It entwines education, romance and lessons in tolerance and wisdom.
So... I like this series, it's well written, good character development, and a pretty plausible plot. While I got the first book free, I did buy the second book. I like that she is writing about American Indians (Lakota to be specific), and his character feels pretty much like I would expect a Lakota to act, but "love conquers all" in the end is kind of hard to swallow. You know where the story is going when you leave the first chapter. She builds upon the characters, and she throws some twists in there, but all in all, she wraps it up too quickly with "Love Conquers All." How about dealing with all the issues that kept them apart throughout the book? How did they deal with the definitely expected racism? It doesn't occur in the book, even though there is plenty of chances for it.
I wasn't mesmerized and nor did I read the book every second I could. No late night reading on this one, but a great one to read before you fall asleep.
I enjoyed reading how things were managed back then, and found it as interesting as the growing romance. The author captured Swift Eagle in words so well, I felt that I'd met him. Or it could have been the cover of the book, too! I loved the four children, and each one had their own personality. I liked and respected Jessica, and understood all her decisions. Near the end is a nail biter of a tale, and I had to finish it, to see how it all worked out. By then though, I'd become so fond of all the characters, I didn't want the story to end. The kind of book that when you finish, you're smiling, and looking to see if you have another read by this author. I hope there are more books like this in the future from Diane Davis White. I highly recommend Moon of the Falling Leaves.
By Diane Davis White
Jessica couldn't be worse off. Her husband's death just three days earlier has left her and her family unprotected against the coming winter with only a destroyed wagon for shelter. So when a handsome Lakota Warrior arrives claiming a vision showed him she would need his help she can only agree and keep a watchful eye on him. Perhaps too watchful she realizes as the tenderness he offers her children and his kindness to her begins to make her feel something other than just mere appreciation toward him. As her time with him grows so do the heated glances between them and she will have to decide if she can risk following what's in her heart.
The star crossed lovers of Diane Davis White's novel MOON OF FALLING LEAVES are the characters romance readers can't get enough of. With the mutual distrust forged between the Lakota people and the White's the two have enough riding against them from the beginning. Yet somewhere between Swift Eagle's kindness towards her children and the unquenchable passions he stirs in her, Jessica finds herself in love. It's this ability to not only transport her readers within her novel, but to make them feel connected to her characters that makes Ms. White's MOON OF FALLING LEAVES a historical romance readers will be beyond delighted to share with their friends.
