Greetings from Kevin Thompson in The Swamp, better known as Florida. Where the gators and the mosquitoes play… We’re sitting here on the front porch, waiting to see which way Hurricane Irma goes. Pray she turns north and plays harmlessly in the Atlantic! Today, I have the privilege of sharing an interview with my friend and fellow author Bonnie Leon.
Welcome, Bonnie, and congratulations on the release of your most recent book! Please tell us about it.
In the spring of 1885, Luba Engstrom meets Nicholas Matroona, a strong, brooding Native from the island of Unalaska. The two elope, believing love is enough to bridge the gap between the civilized world of Juneau and the primitive culture of Nicholas’s small village. Luba struggles to adapt and the conflict between her husband’s belief in ancient gods and her faith in Jesus Christ threatens to destroy Luba and Nicholas’s relationship.
