Under Moonlit Skies focuses on the story of Esther Stanton who had been a minor character in the previous books. Esther takes center stage as life circumstances bring her back to the familiar Illinois prairies. While helping her sister's family, she becomes familiar with the hired man "Stew". Life situations take them far from each other physically although they are never far from each other's minds or hearts. Esther soon finds herself resigned to following the rules and expectations others have placed on her. However, a a change of circumstances occurs when Stew uncovers evidence of wrong-doing by her high-falutin' fiance.
Readers who have not yet read the previous books in this series will have missed some background insights into the relationship between Esther and her sister and Esther and her mom but not enough to keep from enjoying the book. In this title, I enjoyed that Roemer effectively pulls in social issues of the time period which provides the opportunity for Stew to show himself worthy even though he lacks in material possessions. This addition adds adventure and depth to the prairie romance. I also enjoy the colorful prairie language the characters utilize. The addition of some varmints and victuals bring about a smile while reading and fond recollection of hearing family members use the same terms. I found myself enjoying this book even more than the previous titles. I can't wait to find out what new stories we can expect from Cynthia next!
Disclosure of Material Connection: I purchased this book via Kindle of my own volition. I am slightly favorably disposed to the author as we are alumni of the same high school and thus have many friends and acquaintances in common. All opinions expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
I loved how free and at home Esther felt on the prairie. I did not love how she gave up her own desires to please her mother. I definitely did not love Lawrence Del Ray.
I loved Isaac, Abigail, and Benji.
I have a particular confess for Toby and his very wise mother, Annie. One of my favorite lines in this book comes from Annie when she says, "There's two ways of looking at your situation Mr. Brant. You can dwell on being thrown in the river, or you can praise the good Lord for sending someone to fetch ya out."
There are many things to think about when reading this book. I enjoyed the discussion questions in the back.
Though I am sad to see The Praise Sky series come to an end, I look forward to reading more stories from this author.
