I'll Watch the Moon (Historical Fiction Best Sellers)

I’ll Watch the Moon (Historical Fiction Best Sellers)

by Ann Tatlock

The tender story of a polio victim and her friendship with an Auschwitz survivor who dreams of becoming the first man on the moon.

From Publishers Weekly

When polio stalked Minnesota in 1948, fear was every mother’s constant companion, as Tatlock (All the Way Home) shows in this well-written story for the evangelical Christian market. Young Nova Tierney and her older brother, Dewey, live a mostly idyllic life despite sharing living space with a motley assortment of tenants at the boarding house run by their Aunt Dortha and mother, Catherine. Dewey, nicknamed “Galileo” for his love of astronomy, dreams of some day walking on the moon, and he and Nova spend many happy hours looking at the night sky together in their backyard. When Dewey is hospitalized with polio, Nova promises to watch the moon for him (thus the title) until he is well. But will he recover? In her bitterness over a childhood secret, her late husband’s infidelity and her son’s desperate illness, his mother turns her back on God. “Sometimes, I wonder how we all go on living,” she muses. Hope begins to return when she strikes up a friendship with boarder and Auschwitz survivor Josef Karski. Meanwhile, Nova exchanges letters with her brother and dreams of having a father again. She takes comfort in the stars: “as long as the moon was in its place and the stars were burning and the planets were moving through their spheres… everything was all right.” This beautiful story laced with hope, redemption and forgiveness should find wide appeal among CBA readers.

Reviews of this book

——————————————————————————–

“This is a moving and wonderfully encouraging novel…one of the most realistic and significant ones I’ve read, and one that leaves a great inspiration and message of trust in God for the outcome of all things…I highly recommend it.”
— Renownmagazine.com

“In post-World War II America, nine-year-old Nova Tierney worries about Russian bombs, but mostly she wants to find a suitable candidate to marry her mother and give her a new “pa.” Catherine, a tormented soul, is terrified that the polio epidemic will touch her children. When it does strike Nova’s 13-year-old brother, Dewey, Catherine weathers the blow via an unlikely friendship with a concentration camp survivor. Dewey’s dream is to be the first man to land on the moon, and Nova promises to “watch the moon” for him until he gets better. In her third novel, Tatlock continues to weave 20th-century history into absorbing, finely crafted literary tales with issues of spirituality springing naturally from the text. For all collections and readers who enjoy realistic and hopeful family dramas.”

Power Split

Power Split

by W. Ron Drynan

A Philosophical Thriller: What if an outdoorsman and an astronaut were in a position to prove – definitively – whether human beings possess an immortal soul, but neither is willing to die for The Answer?

Wildlife expert and extreme explorer Leon Berger is on top of his game with mini-series on the adventure networks and a loving family. His first excruciating blackout was dangerous. But when the second comes out of nowhere on an ice-climbing expedition gone deadly, he gets much-needed medical attention and maddening media scrutiny.

Ryder Pelse is a former stunt pilot with a shady military past turned astronaut for the commercial space tourism company run by abrasive billionaire William Daxton. Their top-secret test flights are light years ahead of NASA and the competition, but Ryder’s blackouts threaten the mission goal: Answering one of the most important questions facing humanity.

When the mysterious Hanlon connects the blackouts, he discovers the key to mankind’s most essential question: Do we have a soul? The proof he needs to fulfill his lifetime pursuit lies between the two men. Finding The Answer is an end he justifies by any means, regardless of whether he scuttles Daxton’s mission … or kills Ryder and Leon.

WARNING: This book contains scenes of action and violence, as well as strong language.
