Rejected by the exclusive women’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 Tess’s uncle is trying to steal his family’s land, Tess comes face to face with the hatred that simmers just below the surface of the bay and marshes she’s loved since birth. With the help of her mentor Lulu, an herbal healer, Tess pieces together clues to the mysterious disappearance of Jacob’s father twenty-two years earlier and uncovers family secrets that shatter her connection to the land she loves.

Tess and Jacob’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.

Re: Summer of the Oak Moon

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.
