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.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
