Moon Water: A Novel by Pam Webber is a beautifully written novel with interesting characters. Meet sixteen-year-old Nettie, a girl who has issues with her boyfriend and who’s been refused baptism from her preacher. But when she receives a puzzling message from a mysterious Indian medicine woman, a message related to the looming darkness and the blood moon that threatens her and the lives of those she loves, Nettie and her best friend make a difficult choice—travel to the mountains and build the dreamcatcher of ancient elements. But can they avert the danger and save those they love?
The story is told in a voice that is strong and engrossing. I was pulled in from the very beginning, thanks to the author’s gift of descriptive prose which floods the mind of the reader with strong images: “Nibi pulled her shawl tight against the midnight chill. The unearthly call of the weathered dreamcatcher had beckoned her from a sound sleep. Studying the portal in the center of the web, she understood why. A darkness lurked among the shadows, waiting patiently for a chance to hurt the woman-child she loved.” Besides the gorgeous prose and the strong imagery, Pam Webber creates characters that readers will want to follow. It is interesting to see how Nettie quickly morphs into a young woman with a purpose, from someone whose life seemed to be in tatters, with a shaky relationship and poorly defined priorities. The thought of imminent danger infuses her with unique courage, to the extent that she chooses to face a powerful foe. The plot is deftly written, the characters rich and memorable, and the prose delectable.
