"Blood Moon" was such an enjoyable read! Sarah-the heroine and main character was a person that was handed one tough turn after another! When she is unjustly thrown out of her house she thinks that life is finally in her favor but when she faces the rough life of the wilderness in Minnesota her strength and fortitude are once again tested! When Sarah is taken captive by Sioux she once again has to depend on her survival instincts to protect her life and that of her children. Through Sarah's experience in the Sioux tribe the reader gets to the experience of the settlers and the indigenous. Overall, great read and very enlightening!
