'Moonlight' is a story of love found, love lost, old friendships, new friendships. Edward Caulfield is from the "old days"... you know when times were tough but were also simpler. Life is passing him by and his long time friends are passing away. Mentally he is ready to be with his beloved Cecilia once again but his old body just doesn't seem to be ready for the grave just yet. He has seen many changes in his little town over the years but the one thing that hasn't changed is the house he built as a surprise for Cecilia before they were married. Edward has kept it just the way it was when she passed away. Spending his days walking to the old house to sit under the old Oak tree he meets Lena, a young woman with troubles of her own. Quickly becoming fast friends, Lena becomes the daughter he never had and they both end up gaining something from each other that they were lacking, despite the age difference.
Micheal Rivers has done an excellent job with 'Moonlight'. His descriptions are so wonderful, making you feel like you are right there in the story. I love the feeling of nostalgia for those simpler times he recreates. The characters are well developed. With just a touch of paranormal, Moonlight on the Nantahala is highly recommended!
