THE NEW MOON'S ARMS
Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy
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.
The death of Calamity's father changes her life drastically.
