Welcome to my stop for the Summer of the Oak Moon blog tour. Below you will find my review and a giveaway!!!! So check it out and have fun.
When I first started reading this book I was captivated by the scene. This beautifull marsh filled and backwoods southern charm is amazing. I love the lore of the herbal healing and the warm feeling that I got when I read this book. The characters are rich and full of life and a rebel spirit that will have anyone cheering for their love to succeede.
Tess is a teenager that is stuck at a traditional crossroad in her life. Go to college or not go to college. Tess gets denied admission to her mothers college and feels like she is not good enough or smart enough to go to college. So Tess decides to take the summer to figure a few things out. But what Tess finds is not necessairly what she was looking for.
Jacob is a college student that is connected to Tess in more ways than one. They meet in the most amazing way, and a love starts to blossom. Neither one of them are aware of all the ways they are truly connected and reading them figure these ways out and work through them will keep you turning pages into the morning hours.
The social and moral issues of race and religion presented in this book are beautifully written and will have any reader's heart pounding through the duration of the story.
