A tale of courage and hope in the darkest of times...

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.
Fans of WWI historical fiction, Christian historical fiction, and literary fiction will find Silver Moon a moving, powerful read!

MY THOUGHTS.....

I'm a big fan of historical fiction but I haven't read a lot of books centered around World War I. As I read this book, it was very evident that a lot of research had been done by the author and I was very impressed with the detailed information that Jenny Knipfer includes in this story that covers the years 1914-1923. Silver Moon might even be considered an epic story, with many characters and numerous events included in the 400 pages, but it is written in a manner that makes you want to keep reading. I was completely immersed in the accounts of the men at war and I could easily imagine the fear and anxiety of the women left behind in Canada. Some of the story is told through letters shared between these men and women and their correspondence makes the varying emotions and events seem even more real!

Silver Moon reminds us of the tragedy of war but Knipfer also shows the beauty that can occur when hope, faith, and forgiveness are present. This is the third book in the By the Light of the Moon series but my enjoyment wasn't affected because I haven't read the first two. If you are looking for historical Christian fiction that leaves you wanting to learn more, you will want to read Silver Moon.

I received a copy of this book from the author via Prism Book Tours. I wasn't required to write a favorable review and these are my own opinions. 

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
