Publisher's Summary

A gripping and emotional novel that will leave you wondering about the neighbors next door...

On a cold January night, Sharon Lemke heads outside to see a lunar eclipse when she notices something odd at the house behind her backyard. Through her neighbor's kitchen window, she sees what appears to be a little girl washing dishes late at night. But the Fleming family doesn't have a child that age, and even if they did, why would she be doing housework at this late hour?

It would be easy for Sharon to just let this go, but when 18-year-old Niki, a former foster child, comes to live with Sharon, she notices suspicious activity at the Flemings' house as well. When calling social services doesn't result in swift action, the two decide to investigate on their own.

Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this book

The narrator was wonderful, I cared deeply about the characters from the very beginning of the book and the story held my interest throughout.
What more could you ask for? I listen to 3-4 books a week and was very glad to have found one that kept my interest all the way through. I find I get bored or just don’t care about so many of the characters in the books I have been listening to lately. This was a refreshing change of pace.

Wow!

I usually don't like books like this but this book was solo good! It made me mad, cry and happy. I have NEVER had a book do that for me, and the narrator was absolutely awesome! What a great read!

The Moonlight Child

Wow, now this was a story. Heartbreaking and beautifully told. You cannot help but be swept up in this story. I was pulled in immediately, listening in one day! I loved the storyline, characters and sheer heart in this story. You will have your heartstrings tugged from start to finish. I smiled, cried and was moved beyond measure. This book showcases the evil sides of humans, but also the goodness and pureness of true acceptance and unwavering love. A must listen!!!! I highly recommend it for lovers of stories with great depth, richly fleshed out characters and a story you cannot stop listening to!!!

I loved this book

Every character was well developed. The story pulled you in. I didn’t want to stop listening. I was reticent to read a story about a little girl who was abused. However, there is no sexual or real physical abuse. I fell in love with little Mia. Its a feel good book snd I was ready to enjoy a drama with a satisfying ending.

So good!

The performance was amazing! Perfection! The story was great! It was a good time. It had some flaws, but I don’t want to give any spoilers, so I will just keep it at that.

Beautiful writing, compelling story.

This is my very first listen written by Karen McQuestion.

McQuestion did such a wonderful job in making this story feel so real. Every character is detailed in such a way, I couldn't help but root for most of them. (Except for a certain M'AM)

I am so happy this was recommended to me by one of my very good friends, and I cannot wait to listen to more of what this lovely author has written.
