    "MY NEW FAVORITE BOOK!"

    I love to read and have for over four decades, so it is a great compliment to Ms. Tatlock when I say that this book has become my new all-time favorite other than my Bible!

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    Story
    "War Crimes, Polio, Spanish Flu, and HOPE"

    Nova lay under the starry sky every night watching the moon for her brother, Dewey, who could no longer watch the constellations for himself . . . because he instead lay in the hospital stricken with polio in an iron lung, fighting for his life . . . in post WWII 1948 in a small town in Minnesota, life felt hopeless for Nova and her mother, after moving into the boarding house with aunt Dortha. But Nova and Dewey were best friends, not just brother and sister, and Dewey shared his dreams of being the first man on the moon as they lay under the night skies and looked for shooting stars with the telescope. Then, the unthinkable happened . . . Dewey got polio. The many threads of this historical novel come together to tell a deeply woven tale of pain, abuse, love, faith and family unlike any that I have ever experienced. Our God allows us our anger and our doubts . . . and so it was with Nova, Dewey and their mother. And at the same time he sends us his faithful servants, Aunt Dortha, Josef, friends and neighbors to strengthen us and hold us up when our own strength fails. Told through the eyes and ears of a child, this amazingly simple, yet deep story is one for the ages . . . drink it in with your soul.
