First review of "Nights of the Moon" - 5 stars!

I'm very happy to report the first Amazon review of Nights of the Moon - and that it's a 5 star one too!

If you're one of the many who downloaded the book recently (particularly during the free promotion) I'd very much appreciate your review as well!

For those who haven't read it yet, the novel has the following summary:

Leila is a dreamer. She dreams of a successful career, a house in the suburbs with a white picket fence, a "half-decent partner", a couple of kids and maybe even a dog thrown into the bargain. She dreams of writing poetry. But she lives on remote mining sites, working eleven hour days in the fierce desert heat - in a not-so-distant future where there are few, if any, other options on the table. Most recently, Leila finds herself dreaming of a brief halcyon time on Irwin Island in the far north of Western Australia - and Edin: a quietly charming but complex and often inscrutable man with a troubled past. "Nights of the Moon" is a bittersweet drama and mystery, exploring the challenges and realities facing modern relationships - and just what it takes to find fulfillment and meaning in life.
