Review by: Rebecca Scarberry on Jan. 14, 2012 :

The first novel I read by Micheal Rivers was The Black Witch, a very fast paced book. Mr. Rivers told me to expect a much slower pace when reading this one. I have been reading one fast paced book after another and it was so nice to read this one where I could relax and enjoy the characters and Mr. Rivers’ beautiful style of writing.

Edward Caulfield truly did live his life as a shrine to his deceased wife, Celia. I especially liked Edward’s live-in companion/caregiver, Betty. The way he liked to tease her was humorous. Betty cared about Edward very much and at times she seemed to know more about him than he knew about himself.

Although Edward wanted to die and join Celia, he continued to be a caring man. He becomes friends with a younger woman, Lena and the stories they shared were both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Lena was very troubled and thankful to have Edward to talk to.

This story proved to me Mr. Rivers can write a love story and does it well.

I love ghost stories; therefore the paranormal element of this novel was especially pleasing.
I highly recommend you read this story that goes beyond true love.

Review by: Jennifer Goehl on Jan. 14, 2012 :
'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 a beautiful story and is highly recommended!
