PRAISE FOR INDIAN SUMMER BY DELLANI OAKES
January 19, 2012Format: Paperback|Verified PurchaseINDIAN SUMMER
It is 1739 in pre-revolutionary America. Gabriella Deza is only fifteen years old but is about to be swept in to the world of romance and intrigue. It covers all the societal norms of the times and the political climate including spies and espionage. Indian summer is a whirl wind ride and adventure at every page turn. Gabriella is caught between two men at the turning point of American history.
All this is brought together by Dellani Oakes, a consummate author of romance, sci fi , and crime fiction. This is Ms. Oakes first shot at historical romance, but this reader is convinced that she has found a niche in the genre. I look forward to future stories like Indian Summer. I give this five flamenco dances.
