    (236)

    Abilene Tucker feels abandoned. Her father has put her on a train, sending her off to live with an old friend for the summer while he works a railroad job. Armed only with a few possessions and her list of universals, Abilene jumps off the train in Manifest, Kansas, aiming to learn about the boy her father once was. Having heard stories about Manifest, Abilene is disappointed to find that it's just a dried-up, worn-out old town. But her disappointment quickly turns to excitement when she discovers a hidden cigar box full of mementos.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Moon Over Manifest the most enjoyable?

    The narrator of this story was superior! She made me feel as if I was a part of the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abilene of course was my favorite character


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Abilene came upon Mrs Evans sitting on her porch. They looked into each other's eyes. Mrs Evans acknowledged Abilene by lifting her fingers. Such a sutle move, but, so powerful!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    When you don't even know that you are looking, you find your true home.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this story. I am buying copies to give to so many friends and family. Looking forward to Clare Vanderpool's next book.

    Charles Frazier puts his remarkable gifts in the service of a lean, taut narrative while losing none of the transcendent prose, virtuosic storytelling, and insight into human nature that have made him one of the most beloved and celebrated authors in the world. Now, with his brilliant portrait of Luce, a young woman who inherits her murdered sister’s troubled twins, Frazier has created his most memorable heroine. Before the children, Luce was content with the reimbursements of the rich Appalachian landscape....
