Under a Blackberry Moon by Serena B. Miller (Review)

Just a few days after she gives birth alone in the Northwoods, a recently widowed young Ojibwe 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?

With evocative descriptions of a breathtaking landscape, Under a Blackberry Moon will sweep readers into a wild realm where beauty masks danger and only the truly courageous survive, even as the sweet love story along the way tightly grips their hearts.


Under a Blackberry Moon is a very moving and touching tale. The story is rich in detail, which made it very easy to picture everything.

Moon Song was such a complex character. I wasn't sure at first if I was going to like her, but very quickly I did. Then as the story progressed, and I came to understand her, I loved her. I've come to learn that she was a minor character in one of this author's previous books, The Measure of Katie Calloway, and understand why people have said they wanted to see a book about her - she is such a great character!

Under a Blackberry Moon is the first book I've read by this author, but I hope to read her other books soon. Highly recommended!

***I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.***
