Home on the range
Historical author Jill Marie Landis' first hardcover Western romance, Summer Moon, brings a shy Eastern spinster with a heart as big as the Texas sky to the rancher whose eyes and heart are focused on the cold harsh ground of battle.
Reed Benton blames Comanche raiders for the death of his wife and the disappearance of his young son, Daniel, years before. When he and other Texas Rangers recover Daniel, Reed must contend with a son who is now a stranger. Kate Whittington's own childhood in an orphanage gives Daniel the compassion that his own father cannot summon.
A Landis tale is sure to bring powerful tugs to readers' hearts, and Summer Moon fulfills every expectation and more. As she recreates the daily drama of life on the frontier, Landis creates wonderfully real people working to settle the broad plains.
Sandy Huseby writes and reviews from her homes in Fargo, North Dakota, and lakeside in northern Minnesota.
