Young Adult | Multicultural
Rejected by the exclusive womenâ€™s college she has her heart
set on, Tess Seibert dreads the hot, aimless summer ahead.
But when a chance encounter with a snake introduces her to
Jacob Lane, a black college student home on his summer
break, a relationship blooms that challenges the prejudices
of her small, north Florida town.
When Jacob confesses that Tessâ€™s uncle is trying to steal
his familyâ€™s land, Tess comes face to face with the hatred
that simmers just below the surface of the bay and marshes
sheâ€™s loved since birth. With the help of her mentor Lulu,
an herbal healer, Tess pieces together clues to the
mysterious disappearance of Jacobâ€™s father twenty-two years
earlier and uncovers family secrets that shatter her
connection to the land she loves.
Tess and Jacobâ€™s bond puts them both in peril, and
discontent eventually erupts into violence. Tess is forced
to make a decision. Can she right old wrongs and salvage
their love? Or will prejudice and hatred kill any chance she
and Jacob might have had?
Summer Of the Oak Moon is a stunning Southern historical
that takes place in the 1980's.

Although most of my friends don't share my tastes, I really
like books that give me the feeling of being drawn into the
past :) I love historical fiction! This one seems awesome and
I the cover is pretty cool too!

Sometimes. other times I like being in the moment. I'm not real
sure how I feel about time travel. It depends on how it's used.

I do like books that visit the past. I think the past appeals to me because things just seemed simpler back than then now.
