Music from Beyond the Moon was a book that left me with very complicated and conflicting feelings. For the most part, I really liked it, and I feel that it'll make a mark on the people that read it-- but I can't say that it'll be a good mark.
Or a bad mark. One way or the other, they'll remember it. I sure will, because it deals with some tough and taboo subjects. Some that had my gag reflex working overtime-- but we do NOT need to [image error] Due to copy and paste, formatting has been lost. Some that had my gag reflex working overtime-- but we do NOT need to talk about the face I made at one point in this book.
But seriously, if I had a picture it would probably be hilarious. We need to talk about why I made that face.
But it includes spoilers, so you'll need to highlight in between the brackets if you wanna see it. She was one of the women that raised him, and she's like forty, and she's kissing a 17 year old boy? I was disgusted with her.
Music From Beyond The Moon
She was one of my favorite characters before then, but after that I was kind of horrified. Then we have the incest. Which for some weird reason, doesn't really bother me. They didn't know that they were related, and when Victor found out he left Rebecca. I've gotta give him points for that. Plus it's not like they did the nasty. Like the writing-- it was so vivid, and I really liked the author's voice. She managed to write a book about a boy that isn't told by him. Which I honestly wasn't sure about in the beginning, but I think it added to the depth of our story, because Victor himself never really talked.
Fiona, Starry, Glory and Old Man were our main narrators, but we occasionally got a peek into some other characters' minds. Thankfully, the author has a talent for writing multiple points of view, and I never confused myself. And honestly, I just really adored that the story was told by the people around Victor. Kind of like an old legend, you know? I have so much love for that viewpoint, and for the slow southern honey pacing. But because the pacing was so slow, it brought up another issue.
I felt like I had it all figured out by the time the story actually started All in all, Music from Beyond the Moon was well written and interesting, but the taboo-ness and the slow bits brought my overall rating down.

In the light of a reckless young woman, the childless Grace found an abandoned toddler in the woods. When it came to a desire for an offspring, no one could compare to the lonely widow, which resulted in Grace taking in the boy under her wings.
In an effort to keep the child, whom was named Victor, to herself, they lived under a false pretense that he was the nephew of her dead sister. To her dismay, her deception was almost revealed, contrary to her dream of keeping him. Victor growing up result In the light of a reckless young woman, the childless Grace found an abandoned toddler in the woods. Grace tried to stop them from dating in an effort to put an end to their unyielding relationship. To her great dismay, it backfired on her. Contrary to her original plan, Victor left her to join the army.
To my dismay, the last paragraph was false; manifested from my over-developed imagination.
Contrary to my expectation, Music from Beyond the Moon was boring and slow, which resulted in my inability to finish reading it when I've finish the plot line of the first paragraph. Sorry for misleading you, but that was probably what happened In the light of the lust-inducing cover, I was intrigued and hopeful when it came to the romance. To try and address what she perceived was a hauntingly heartbreaking love story; the author lost her focus in her own words.
I tried to not throw the book to the ground over and over again until it crumbled right under my feet in an effort to stay in tune until the romance was put forth. To my dismay, even that took too long. Review also seen on A Bluish-Green Blog This was a really good book. An abandoned toddler is taken in and raised by a widow with no children and her black friend. The setting is in Florida at a fish camp and restaurant, run by the women.
Other characters include the doctor, his own adopted daughter, the Seminole indian Old Man, and his family, and Starry, a young woman left behind by her no-good boyfriend. The characters are all rich and interesting and their relationships add to the enjoyment of the book. The plot line is interesting This was a really good book. The plot line is interesting and at times predictable, but not always.
There is a Christian element to the book and the belief in God is important, but it seems to be more believable than many Christian books. At least I didn't feel like I was getting pounded over the head! I really liked this book and the style of writing, as well as the characters and plot.
I have continued to reflect on it since I finished reading, which is always a good sign. I would recommend. Apr 21, Tintaglia rated it liked it.

That being said, with one look at this lovely cover, I expected a wildly romantic story set in the WWII era about an orphaned boy who falls in love, written in the frist pov by the main protagonist.
What I got was a third person pov tale with beautifully written prose that bored me so much I couldn't finish the first quarter. I waited for the story to pick up, for something to actually happen, but eventually I just lost interest This is one of those books that I judged by the cover. I waited for the story to pick up, for something to actually happen, but eventually I just lost interest. Augusta Trobaugh is a gifted writer, no doubt skilled in the art of descriptive writing, but she needs to work on pacing and how to keep interest in not only the story line but the characters.
I didn't care about any of them enough to pick it back up again.
Apr 29, Jennifer Reeves rated it really liked it Shelves: books-read. Even if we lose love. Even if we try to kill it, or it succeeds in killing us. Even if it laughs in our faces while it rips out our hearts and leaves us to bleed to death, we are blessed. They both care for him like he is their naturally born son. You read about what people will do for love for family and otherwise.
