Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains during the summer of 1969, Moon Water finds Nettie, 16, with her boyfriend wanting to breakup just as they are figuring out the sex thing. Nettie’s lifelong nemesis is jabbing her with perfectly polished nails, while her hellfire and brimstone preacher refuses to baptize her. Amid this turmoil, a Monacan Indian medicine woman gives her a cryptic message about a coming darkness, a blood moon whose veiled danger threatens Nettie and those she loves. To prepare for the darkness, Nettie and her best friend, Win, make a treacherous journey into the mountains to build a mysterious dreamcatcher of ancient elements.

I grew up in the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York and share
your love of the mountains and what they have to offer the soul. We
have lived in the Rocky Mountains and now live along the Blue Ridge
Mountains in NE TN. Nature and our elders have much to offer and
teach each of us. We need to be more open and listen to them.

The setting in the Blue Ridge mountains drew my attention. I enjoyed a family trip in that area and would enjoy doing it again.
