Meet the Authors
Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains during the summer of 1969, Moon Water follows Nettie, a reeling, gritty sixteen-year-old. Her boyfriend wants to breakup, her life-long nemesis is jabbing her, and her preacher refuses to baptize her. In the middle of all this, an old medicine woman for the Monacan Indians gives her a cryptic message about a coming a blood moon whose veiled danger threatens Nettie and those she loves. To prepare for the darkness, Nettie and her best friend have to build a mysterious dreamcatcher, one that requires scouring the perilous mountains for Nature's ancient but perfect elements.
