One of the things I enjoy most about Ms. Trissel's writing is her amazing ability to transport readers directly into her stories. Her mastery of descriptive language never ceases to amaze me. "Green-gold light streamed through the rippling leaves while high overhead a yellow warbler trilled sweet, sweet, sweet and the warmth of hay-scented fern wafted on the mild breeze." After reading this first sentence, I already felt as if I were standing next to Kira in the woods. I could see, hear, and smell everything she did. Completely immersed in the story, I eagerly dove into the pages that followed.
Kira is certainly a spirited young woman. She wants to live her life on her own term, but that proves to be much more difficult than she ever imagined. Logan is the only man Kira has ever loved and she is determined not to marry anyone else. Kira goes to extreme measures to ensure that no one else wants to marry her. While her odd way of behaving has successfully kept unwanted suitors away, it has also ensured that people have a hard time believing her when she is actually telling the truth.
Kira's brash behavior frequently gets her into some interesting situations. I couldn't help but laugh the first time that Logan and Kira meet. Kira is alone in the woods when she sees someone coming toward her. Before Kira realizes who Logan is, she makes an ill fated attempt to hide that had me smiling and shaking my head.
Logan is the perfect man for Kira, but he is also deeply conflicted. Logan claims that he belongs with the Shawnee, but it is very clear that he still harbors strong feelings for his old home and community. I have a feeling that Logan and Kira are going to face a very tough decision concerning where they are going to make their home. Logan has found a new family among the Shawnee, but Kira desperately wants him to reclaim his family's old homestead. Will they ever find a place where they both truly belong?
I have been a fan of Ms. Trissel's work for years. Kira, Daughter of the Moon completely lived up to every one of my expectations. I highly recommend this wonderfully written tale to anyone who loves historical romance.

While following Kira and Logan's personal battles we meet the best and worst of mankind. Evil and criminal forces threaten to keep them apart, and even kill them. Kira must learn to curb her tongue, hide her strange abilities and develope a strength she never dreamed she would be able to show. But is Logan worth the cost? Will he be true to her and give her a life she will be able to embrace? Can they ferret out the true villians and find peace and safety?
Miss Trissle's lush descriptions of the rugged mountians, the harsh living conditions, and the uncertain times give life to what our forefathers endured to build a land we now call America. The characters, rugged Scot-Irish men and women, soldiers, Indians, and engaging children, come alive in this romantic adventure of life and love on the frontier.
