“From the second that you start reading West of the Moon to the moment that you finish, you will be immersed in a totally different place and you will forget that you are reading a book. Journey into the world of Astri, who has been sold to the local goat herder. Forced to do back-breaking labor and punished dreadfully for the slightest mistake, Astri devised a plan to free herself, save her sister from being sold into slavery, and get to America to start a new life.
“This book is a necklace strung with beautifully worded sentences. It gives the reader a clear view ofAstri’s essence. This is a must read.”
— Ripley, Junior Bookseller* at Queen Anne Book Company
