Highly recommended good read 5 stars

The review:

Jack has pined for the month since Sally dumped him. They were not compatible, makes no difference, the inexperienced grad student continues to mope. She was his first real girl friend and the twenty-two-year old Jack isn’t sure he is really going to get over her. Jack’s friends encourage him to find a girl at the Mother Earth bar and get on with life. The meeting of seventeen year old Loni is a turning point for Jack.

She is no shrinking violet. The pair also have little if anything in common, nonetheless their relationship grows into something more than either expected. Jack learns to love and discovers the brassy Loni has a softer side as well. Will she be able to accept the true devotion he is offering.

A FACE IN THE MOON presents a sad lonely young man readers are sure to enjoy getting to know, and will cheer him on in his search for happiness. The insecurities plaguing Jack and Loni threatens to rupture their relationship when a series of unforeseen events keeps the young pair apart. Jack in Austin, Texas treasures each letter he receives from Loni during her stay in England. The wedding of his brother and birth of a tiny nephew, the son of his sis helps Jack to put his life in focus.

Excellent read! ‘This is a cannot put it down until I have finished the last chapter’ tale from the opening line right down to the last chapter. Mitchell Waldman has crafted a delightful offering in his presentation novel. Told in the first person, which is my least favorite type of writing, A FACE IN THE MOON is a well written, entertaining work.

I rarely comment on book covers, however, for this marvelous delivery I must. The cover is so intriguing I had to begin reading this book as soon as I received it.

Writer Waldman shows great talent for developing characters who are people you feel you know, then placing them in life settings we can all understand and believe. The struggle his Jack and Loni must battle is well crafted in this intriguing tale. Waldman applies skill in his flowing narrative complete with a skillful portrayal of their psychological grapplings

Well, the title is also a grabber. I'd love to see the cover so I'll go to the author's authorsden and have a look. As usually you've presented a concise and invitational description of the heart and soul of "A Face on the Moon." I do believe that many younger readers will enjoy the trials and tribulations of young folks trying to get their act together and grow old together. To old goats like me, it will be nastalgic: You see I've written a story thats similar. It's an enhanced slice of my life and I suspect the author is part of his story. What the hey do I know.

The book sounds really good, one I definitly would read. I like books that move at a good pace and this one sounds like it does and maybe even has a message.
