This book will find a special place in the hearts of many readers, especially those, like me, who have adopted children to fill voids in their families and their hearts. Beyond that, however, this story will tug at the heartstrings of the remaining generation who endured World War II, and their children; both as active military and as the children, spouses and parents who anxiously waited for news in the deafening silence back home.
Claire, a young wife with a broken heart who wants a family, is torn by the grief of a stillborn child, the joy of adoption and the fear she will lose her husband to circumstances beyond her control. Ron, Claire’s husband is torn by events that leave him with no choices that do not involve separation from Claire and, Hannah, their newly adopted daughter, and which ultimately threaten his life. David, Claire’s brother, has fallen in love. He is responsible for the family’s well-being in 1945, but who has lost their round trip ticket to the present. Margaret, their neighbor from across the street in the very different Chattanooga of 1945, is torn between her love for a naval officer involved in the Pacific war and growing love for David, and her high regard for the Claire, Ron and Hannah.
And then there is Hannah…who was born under a full moon.
Oh, did I mention, that Claire, Ron and David are from 2017 and Margaret and Hannah are from 1945 Chattanooga, Tennessee; a time and city dominated by concerns about the war?
The result is a riveting story that effectively captures the emotion and anxiety of the times and of the personal emotions and anxiety of the characters. Readers will be particularly pleased with the significance of “Hannah’s moon”.
Time travel facilitates and complicates the story, but it is only marginally science fiction. This book is about emotions, courage in the face of adverse circumstances and about climbing back on the horse after being thrown. It is well written and edited and should appeal to just about any type of reader.

Authors need reviews!
Need reviews? I will provide a FREE honest review for 4-6 fiction books each month from specified genre. Reviews are always FREE, I read the following genre: mystery, crime, and science fiction/fantasy only. No romance, young adult, religious or erotica. As a lifelong reader I do not care for serial series books; I will accept them, but I will review them based on my satisfaction with only the story contained in the volume I reviewed.
Reviews will be posted on your choice of Amazon or Smashwords, Goodreads and Library Thing, Barnes & Noble and/or Kobo. In addition, I will post the reviews on this site, on my Tumblr site and my Pinterest Blog Review Board. My reviews also appear in the Midwest Book Review, Polk's Bookshelf, during the following month.
