By Way of the Moonlight Review

About the Book

 Two courageous young women, tied together by blood and shared passion, will risk everything to save what they love most.

For as long as she can remember, Allie Massey, a gifted physical therapist, has dreamed of making her grandparents’ ten-acre estate into a trauma recovery center using equine therapy—a dream her grandmother, Nana Dale, embraced wholeheartedly. But when her grandmother’s will is read, Allie is shocked to learn the property has been sold to a developer.

Decades earlier, headstrong Dale Butler’s driving passion is to bring home the prized filly her family lost to the Great Depression, but with World War II looming, she’s called upon in ways she never could have imagined. And while her world expands to include new friends and new love, tragedy strikes close to home one fateful night during the Battle of the Atlantic, changing her life forever.

As Nana Dale’s past comes to light in Allie’s search for answers, Dale’s courage and persistence may be just what Allie needs to carry on her grandmother’s legacy and keep her own dreams alive. (Goodreads)


My Thoughts

I really had no idea what to expect with this novel as I haven't read much by Elizabeth Musser. I was pleasantly surprised when this book managed to keep me up until the wee hours of the morning. I simply could not put it down. I LOVED the dual time line and how everything intertwined together. I learned something from history I didn't know from WWII which was fascinating! Dale Butler is a character all her very own and the author did a fantastic job writing her. There are so many things I enjoyed in this story and it will be one that sticks with me for awhile. Fantastic characters and terrific writing make this book one to remember! 

Five stars.
