Review

The Diary of a Northern Moon
Murder, mystery, and romance...what more could readers want? Well, good writing and Gloria Waldron Hukle delivers that too in The Diary of a Northern Moon.
--The US REVIEW of BOOKS by J. Alpha --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Author

 "The Diary of a Northern Moon" was a story that I knew I would eventually write because for years I had slices of a contemporary novel tucked away in a binder.  These slices were actually scenes I had witnessed and then coupled with pieces of old New York Adirondack folklore told to me by an elderly cousin. The research I began three decades ago sprouted Manhattan Seeds of the Big Apple my first novel.Originally, I wanted to write one great American novel, but one binder full of notes eventually became six.  In the end the slices, the lore, and family research for a couple dozen Colonial families as well as the life I have lived became three novels which has grown into the Waldron Series. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

More About the Author

I am author Gloria Waldron Hukle, resident of the Capitol District area of upstate New York on the fringe of the beautiful Berkshire Mountains. I reside here with my husband and two sister dogs, Bertha and Louise. I have written three novels known internationally as the "Waldron Series Books" and I delight in bringing the people of early American history back to life with a mix of fact and fiction. Many of the characters living in my novels, "Manhattan: Seeds of the Big Apple", "Threads - An American Tapestry", and "The Diary of a Northern Moon", are factual- the unsung heros I discovered through years of research. They are some of the many forgotten people who made the USA the country it is and upon whose example we follow in making it better today. My life as a novelist was birthed by my passion for New York history and a personal genealogy as an llth generation Waldron. "Manhattan: Seeds of the Big Apple" follows the life of Resolved Waldron, his family and neighbors such as Augustine Herrman and Peter Stuyvesant living in mid-l600s Manhattan. This story is about a man who struggles to make a new life for his young family amid a diversity like no other on earth, i.e., New Amsterdam that later became New York City. "Manhattan: Seeds of the Big Apple", the story of early l600s Dutch New York, is now available for the Kindle, iPad, Blackberry, pc etc. My second novel "The Diary of a Northern Moon", published in both hard and softcover, recently went live in the Kindle Store. This is a more contemporary novel that takes place in the Adirondack Mountains of New York with strong ties to "Manhattan: Seeds of the Big Apple". In l976, a popular bar in Lake George, New York, is the scene for a man's murder. The news reports the gruesome killing as a crime of passion which inadvertently resurrects a decades old question. Who was Ben Waldron? The story tells of two men who are good friends, veterns of World War II. One is able to come past the trama of the war, marries and does well, while the other can't come to terms with the life he finds after the war. He dies young leaving behind a widow and young daughter. The survivor, now an innkeeper, keeps a secret about his dead friend that haunts him for decades until a young woman's digging and the murder in Lake George forces out the truth. This 20th century story is set in Albany, North Creek and Lake George, with ties to the New York City of the old Dutch, answering questions left open in "Manhattan: Seeds of the Big Apple".
My third novel, "Threads - An American Tapestry", follows "Manhattan: Seeds of the Big Apple" chronologically, opening in the year l722 along the Hudson River north of New York City. "Threads - An American Tapestry" is the poignant story of Margaret Vandenberg, an affluent provincial New York woman of mixed blood who struggles as a slave owner to understand the Christain faith she dearly embraces, yet one that seemingly allows Christian owners to justify the harsh, cruel laws of slavery in her time. Without a doubt it is the people of New York then and now who provided not only inspiration for three books, but forged the history of America as we know it today.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Stephen Perreault on February 11, 2008
Format: Paperback
In her second novel Gloria Hukle again hits the mark by tracing the path of the mysterious Waldron clan in rural upstate New York. Her initial book "Manhattan - Seeds of the Big Apple" saw the arrival of her pioneer Waldrons in 17th century America and their establishment in the fledgling New Amsterdam colony. Now she unravels the family's many current day secrets once they migrate to far north Adirondack country. Here again her tale carefully weaves familiar names and places with a creative plot that reveals several unexpected twists and turns. All in all, an old fashion adventurous and uplifting story for adults and teenagers alike, a rare combination among today's many fictional offerings.

Another excellent novel by Gloria Hukle, which takes place in more modern times, but manages to tie in to the past as well. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and recommend it for all ages! I look forward to book #3!

I am connected to the Waldron family and enjoyed this book, which spun a believable tale of generational connections. I am also from upstate NY, grew up in the 70's and 80's and could relate to the characters. Good read for all, especially those interested in history. I thank the author for the series!

I found this book while researching family genealogy, and fell in love with the characters as well as the story. It was well written and drew me in. Not only did I learn about some of my ancestors, but this author has a way of making history come alive in a very interesting and entertaining way. I would recommend any of her books. I thoroughly enjoyed them, and had a hard time putting them down until I was finished, and thought about them long after.

Format: Paperback
As a resident of the Adirondacks living near North Creek, the scene of this novel, I found it particularly appealing. However,it has universal appeal as an historical novel and a modern mystery, an unbeatable combination. Furthermore, it is based on the true story of the Waldron family, lovingly detailed by an ancestor of the original Waldrons of the Dutch settlement of Nieuw Amsterdam, introduced to us in Manhattan Seeds of the Big Apple. Readers of both books will want to follow the Waldron history in Threads, An American Tapestry.
