Charlene Radon has created an engaging story about Ariah Scott and
Bartholomew Moon. Together this couple fights their attraction when life
thrust them together. Ariah is a mail order bride. Bartholomew is a
light house keeper and the uncle of Ariah's betrothed. Through intrigue
and interesting circumstance, the story captivates the reader. I liked
Radon's writing style and how she infused historical relevancy and facts
into the characters dialogue, actions, reaction and the setting.
