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