THE NEW MOON'S ARMS
This magical tale is rich in details
and a delight for the senses. A feisty
woman with an unusual gift narrates, while a host of vivid characters --
each with old secrets and personal
pain -- drives the story. Hopkinson effortlessly weaves together the disparate threads of these characters
into a rich tapestry. The local legend about sea people transforms the story, taking it in an unexpected direction. This book represents a powerful escape from reality, but if the reader is not fully invested in the story, it can be a little unbelievable.
