Lily and the moon book
Tears of the Moon (Lily Barton, book 1) by Di MorrisseyThe novel makes it clear this story falls within that particular brand of sci-fi that is firmly embedded in the current world around us, that it is as much a work of social commentary as much as sci-fi. Halo is a 12 year old girl from rural Yorkshire who has spent her life looking at the stars. She is frustrated with the distance that adolescence is creating within herself and with her childhood best friend. Ageze is the level headed and intelligent eldest son of an engineer and teacher from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. When visiting his grandmother he finds a mysterious ancient Aksumite device that after research Ageze find it delivers portents about the future, including one of devastation and death thousands of miles away in Yorkshire, England.
The book follows the changes in the lives of the families of our earliest astronauts. Overnight, these women were transformed from military spouses into American royalty. They had tea with Jackie Kennedy, appeared on the cover of Life magazine, and quickly grew into fashion icons. As their celebrity rose-and as divorce and tragedy began to touch their lives-the wives continued to rally together, forming bonds that would withstand the test of time, and they have stayed friends for over half a century. The Community Read is an opportunity for our county to come together to share ideas about a book and its themes, and to hear the author speak about her work. Marys, Wapakoneta, and Waynesfield. Each week, we will watch one episode and have a discussion.
