ABOUT THE BOOKS
Title: Silver Moon
Series: By the Light of the Moon #3
Author: Jenny Knipfer
Release Date: June 30, 2020
Genre: Inspirational Historical Romance
Silver Moon, the third book in the series: By the Light of the Moon, paints a stunning and poignant picture of life on the home front in Webaashi Bay, Ontario, and of three men who are a part of the Canadian Expeditionary Force during WWI.
Shamed into joining the war, the tide turns for Luis Wilson when he is steered into the depths of espionage. Injured and presumed missing, will he lose his heart to the very woman who presented him with a white feather?
Oshki and Jimmy offer a grim perspective on life in the trenches. They despair of ever returning home to the women who hold their hearts.
Meanwhile, Lily fights for the cause in her own way and rallies the female troops at home as prejudices run high and the local cafe owner is accused of being a spy.
Will the women of Webaashi Bay receive their men back unscathed? Can the power of love win out over insurmountable odds? All this drama and more plays out under the light of a silver moon.
I really do think this series gets better with every book. I still can't decide if I like Blue Moon or Silver Moon the best, but they're both pretty awesome. One of my favorite things about this series is that while there is romance, romance doesn't drive the story. Silver Moon has a little more romance than the others, but still, there's lots of just plain townsfolk story to read, which is very refreshing. Silver Moon actually takes place twenty years after Ruby Moon and Blue Moon, which puts us right in the throws of WWI. I think it's even harder to come up with a unique war story, but once again, this storyline is killing it. (No, that was not meant to be a macabre pun... *Face palms*) The characters, once again, are what really make this story. Even the ones that I had no intention of caring about have somehow wormed their way into my heart. Silver Moon does have a little more language (mostly mild) and other uncomfortable content, but it's still a good good story. And almost everything that annoyed me about the first book seems to have smoothed out with each successive book, and I really haven't wanted to throw this one a single time. Somehow, this two decades later story is the perfect way to wrap up the stories. (Unless there's a surprise fourth book that I don't know about :) )
While I did receive a complimentary copy of this book, you're still getting my enthusiastic (and slightly spastic) honest review. As always.
