Silver Moon is a work of fiction set in the historical and dramatic sub-genres and was penned by author Jenny Knipfer. The third novel in the By the Light of the Moon series, the book is recommended for more mature readers due to the presence of some scenes of wartime violence and serious injury. Set in an unusual and under-represented corner of World War 1, the book covers the exploits and experiences of three men who belong to the Canadian Expeditionary Force, as well as the people they must leave behind back in Webaashi Bay, Ontario. This varied cast recounts the true cost of war, the power of love and belief, and the fortitude of the human spirit against times of crisis.
Author Jenny Knipfer has crafted an absolutely stunning historical piece that stands alone and can be enjoyed by anyone who loves strong interpersonal drama. I love works set during World War 1 because it’s such an interesting and unprecedented time, and to see the realism and emotional intelligence with which Knipfer writes really warms the heart, even in the most tragic moments of the story. The central characters are all powerful and heroic in their own ways, but I felt most for Oshki and Jimmy in the trenches. The descriptions of the physical experiences and hardships there were visceral and vivid and stayed with me for a long time after I finished the book. Overall, Silver Moon is a highly recommended read for fans of historical wartime fiction, powerful emotive drama, and excellent atmospheric writing.
