Dancing With the Moon
Ten years ago, Sabrina Ashley watched the murder of her father. She not only kept that a secret, but she also took a piece of evidence that could help convict his killer and keep people from thinking it was simply an accident. Having hidden her knowledge and that bit of evidence for ten years, it is now finally becoming time for the past to be examined and the repercussions of that event to come into the open. Sabrina’s life faces complications as her mother remarries and as she is becoming an adult.
Dancing with the Moon has a fair amount of religious themes and elements, all helping develop a strong story of family, faith, and redemption. Sabrina is an engaging character, and Saxton has a good ear for dialog. The choices Sabrina faces as she makes that jump from adolescence to adulthood are ones that many people have faced and readers will remember their own experiences with first loves, high-school pressures, and making decisions that affect the course of their lives. Additionally, Sabrina also must deal with the long-ago death of her father and the need to open that event to see that justice is finally served. An uplifting coming of age novel.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
