: Waiting For The Moon
Historical Fiction, Historical Romance
: Five Stars *****
As a longtime fan of Kristin Hannah, I had to pick this one up when I saw it. It’s an older one, and in my opinion is more authentic. Sometimes it is worthwhile going back to the roots. I’m so glad I did. Waiting For The Moon
is now right up there beside The Nightingale,
fighting for first place. The later is still my top pick, but that took some soul searching to determine.
Back to Waiting For The Moon.
Most of the characters I loved. They felt so complex and real. Some I hated for their flawed human traits. Ugh! Ian. I felt so deeply for ‘Selena’ from the very first scene. It is a great, immersive and thought-provoking novel, with tender hints of humor that had me giggling at moments.
This is an emotional and spellbinding tale of obsession and redemption.
Without a doubt, worth reading.
