In the 1800s divorced women carried a stigma. Her heroine in Under A Lakota Moon is divorced. Rosalynn McAllister leaves St. Louis for Peaceful, Minnesota to start a new life with her sister's family. She believes God has a plan for her life and this is part of it. When she arrives in Peaceful she finds it is anything but peaceful. Her sister has run off, her brother in law is dead and her niece and nephew are living with the local minister. As a single woman she cannot get custody of the children. She and her brother in laws brother marry to obtain custody. Lone Wolf Lawson has long been persecuted for his Indian heritage. Rosalynn and Lawson are attracted to each other but both have trust issues.
Under A Lakota Moon is a character study of Rosalynn. Her ex husband was abusive. She carried demons of mistrust with her.
I enjoyed this book. It is a quick read and very “clean.” The author was very careful to avoid foul language or inappropriate behavior on the part of the main characters. I appreciate that in a book.
