I bought this book because I had read another work by the author, The Black Witch, which I thoroughly enjoyed. First, let me say these two books are nothing alike, and one of my first impressions after I began reading Moonlight On The Natahala was that Mr. Rivers is a very talented, diverse writer! Moonlight is a book about a love that transcends death, and a friendship that transcends generation. It is a story of hope and courage, and the willingness to open our hearts to accept the gifts we are being offered.
Rivers gives us an uncommon friendship which develops between the elderly protagonist, Edward Caulfield, and a young, troubled woman named Lena. These two unlikely friends reach out to one another, sharing their hopes, fears, and confidences, and in return, each gains what they need most at this point in their life. Through Edward and Lena, we come to realize how precious friendship is, and those that leave the most lasting mark on our lives may be the ones we least expected. In the end, we are left to ponder the workings of fate. Throughout the story we know Edward is ready to die, to join his beloved wife, but his weary body holds on. Destiny needs him, because Lena needs him, and her life is irrevocaby changed for the better because of the gift of this touching friendship, short lived as it was.
Moonlight On The Nantahala is an emotionally satisfing read that will remind everyone of the value each unique person has, and that who or what we need most in our lives may come from the last place we think to look.
Well done, Mr. Rivers! A real winner, I was not disappointed!

This novel stirred my soul and left me moved beyond belief. The story is almost a memoir of Edward Caulfield's life and the love he had for his beautiful deceased wife, Celia. He shares his haunting tale through visits with a lonely young woman, Lena. Lena has her own troubled past that is detailed within. I felt as if I walked through every memory and heartbreak with the characters.

Timeless and beautiful, almost a romance with a remarkable intertwining of the spiritual world included as well. Five stars is truly not worthy enough to rate how this story spoke to my heart. Rivers has created a book that stands the test of time and I can see his work being enjoyed by other readers for generations to come.

Michael Rivers does an extraordinary job with his modern fiction Moonlight on the Nantahala. It is evocative and it captures so thoroughly the spirit of this part of the Appalachians that I found it easy to picture the setting the around me. I may have an advantage some readers don't have; I am from outside of Asheville and so the areas Rivers speaks of are in my proverbial expanded back yard. In fact, this is part of what drew me to the book, but it was the storyline that made me stay.

Edward is elderly man, still very independent and living on his own with the help of a live-in housekeeper. He lives in a bungalow in town, but walks every day to the house he once shared with his wife Celia on the banks of the Nantahala. One day there is a young woman along the banks. For a time, three years in fact, she and Edward share the space along the bank, each in their own little area, until one day she finds out the property belongs to Edward, and belatedly asks his permission to be on his land.

Over time Lena, Edward and Edwards's housekeeper, and friend, Betty Curtis all begin a wonderful friendship, which includes in a strange fourth, Celia, Edward's long departed wife who he mourns every day and who occupies a place of honor in his daily conversation. The love Edward felt, and still feels for his beloved wife comes across clearly on the page as does his respect and affection for his housekeeper Betty. Also, the relationship between Edward and Lena grows and he sees her like the daughter he and Celia never had.

Lena is married to a philandering no-good man who could care less about her. He is more interested in the power she brings him through her family and the way she looks on his arm.

Wonderfully written. The author captured love, friendship, loss, and sorrow beautifully.

The book was a refreshing reminder that true love exists in many forms.

Thoroughly enjoyed this read. Good storytelling, good character development - you could envision the house that Edward Caulfield built for his wife.

it was very well written and had a nice twist that I liked. Love never dies is the main theme that I liked. Even tho it tackled the problem when a marriage can die. Just well done.
