Editorial Reviews

Review

I picked the book up and could not put it down. Very well written. This book would make a great movie. - David Simpson - author of Loch Raven
Whether you lived through the sixties or not, Randy Mixter's Sarah of the Moon is one story you will remember long after you have finished reading it. - Jeffrey Miller - author of Ice Cream Headache
Mr. Mixter's ability to communicate in a thought provoking way is a rare find. Not just a novel for Baby Boomer's, but for anyone who would enjoy a novel about the hopes and dreams of youth.- Underground Book Reviews


"Sarah Of The Moon is an excellent, well written book. I had never heard of Randy Mixter before, but I genuinely wonder why because his writing is exceptionally gifted.Within a very few pages, I was completely pulled into the story, to the degree that I did not feel I was reading but was watching a movie." - Goodreads Review

From the Author

A passage from Sarah Of The Moon.
     When she turned to face him and their eyes met, his heart melted in his chest. His dream, and the brief sighting of her on the hill, had not prepared him for her delicate beauty.
     She wore a dress of pure white. Thin straps held it to her shoulders. The dress continued to her ankles where it billowed out, but not enough to hide her bare feet.
     Her long blonde hair, parted evenly across her brow, followed the curve of her shoulders, ending near her elbows. Centered atop her head was a tiara of colorful flowers, all in various stages of bloom.
     Around her neck was a gold chain attached to a locket. A jeweled bracelet adorned each wrist, but her fingers were undecorated.
     The sunlight filtering into the room from its only window favored her above the others, burnishing her pale skin in its glow.   
     She was smiling at him, and he could not look away. The girl next to her whispered something in her ear and Sarah's blue eyes shimmered slightly, just enough to draw him to them. In this brief space of time, when a dream became real and the earth ceased its spin, he knew Chick was correct. This was a world of magic.

I was so excited to have found this book because my dad was born in 1949 in San Francisco, and to this day he is what you would call an old school hippie. I hated anything to do with that when I was a child and was horribly embarrased by my father, and even cringed when tyedye came back into style several years ago, but reading this book gave me a piece of what my fathers early years were like and helps me to understand him more. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore the man, he's my hero, I was just a normal teenager who was embarrased by her parents.

This book was written so well, it was amazing. I felt like I was on the streets of San Fransisco and I was going to pass by a much younger version of my dad at any moment. I love all types of books and feel that I grow every time I read something as amazing as this one. I loved Sarah so much and how she was mysterious and slowly started to give pieces of herself away.

Spoiler Alert: The car scene was so dang terrifying. First the way the previous chapter ended making me wonder what was going to happen, and then I could practically feel the tension as he was running. I'm trying to say this without giving things away. My heart was pounding. Also another scene with the officers, I actually laughed out loud, making my husband ask what was so funny. I rarely laugh out loud when reading. I will smile, or cry, but rarely laugh.

This book has it all, mystery, romance, history, and teaches us to have compassion for things that we just don't unerstand. This book was written so well. You will certainly be missing out on something special if you don't read this amazing book. I also went and looked at the author's profile and found it really interesting that he served in Vietnam and was still able to write something so compelling.

This story took me way back...Nothing was left behind, and it stayed true to the era. The struggles that Alex had to endure to 'fit in', were really written well. After finishing this book, I found myself at a loss for words. This is truly a multi-faceted story, like a diamond that shines in many directions. I could see Sarah dancing in my mind, and I feel all of Alex's love for her..The cover is beautiful.
A very, well written work of art.

I've wanted to review this book for awhile and haven't had a chance. Before I start I am going to be up front and tell you that Randy is an old friend and we have known each other about forty years, give or take. So, you can skip this or read an objective and heartfelt review.
Randy did the 60's in Baltimore, and so no, he never got to San Francisco. I lived in northern New Jersey, so neither did I, but that does not mean that the tremendous influence of the city didn't affect us. By age 13 I knew about just about every obscure band from the Bay area and was listening to them night and day. I went to see "Psych-Out" at the drive in, watched "The Trip" and was immersed in the culture. A few years later when I met Randy, the basis of our friendship was that he was the same. We were immersed in San Francisco psychedelia.
I am not a fan of romance or love stories, so I approached "Sarah" from the perspective of history. I am a professional historian, did a radio show called "The Psychedelic Flashback" for ten years and got to meet and talk to many of the figures who created the initial social experiment in the Haight back in 1965/1966. I have met the late Chet Helms, Ron Elliot, Declan Mulligan, Peter Albin, Barry Melton, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady, Signe Anderson ( a good friend), Darby Slick, John Cippolina, Peter Kraemer. Roky Erickson, John Ike Walton and others. I was around then, I listened to the music, I've met many of the people and I can say that the background research for this book was impeccable. This was written from the point of view of someone who wore those clothes, listened to that music and loved that era. Sure, since he didn't LIVE in the Haight, Randy turned to books and films and records for his research, whats wrong with that?

A great book by Randy Mixter

The main character, Alex, is a bored reporter for a hometown newspaper and he was stuck in a small cubicle assigned to covering local events. He is a temp, he is bored with covering garden shows and county fairs types of stories. Just when he thinks he cannot stand the boredom any longer, his boss gives him an assignment to go to Haight-Ashbury, CA to cover the Summer of Love in 1967. Alex is delighted and jumps at the chance to do something much more fun. His boss hooks Alex up with his nephew, a guy named, Chick, who maintains a house where the Flower Children live.
a clueless young man

Alex comes from the East and when East meets West, Alex at first, experiences culture shock. He has heard of Hippies but never met any before now. He finds they seem almost foreign in nature, compared to the straight laced life with his mother and retired military, father back home.

The Hippies dress differently, they indulge in recreational drugs and they even seem to talk a whole different language than Alex has ever known before. But it isn't long before the Hippies, most of them anyway, make him feel at home. Chick even gives Alex a tour of the area and helps Alex buy some Hippie clothes so he doesn't stick out like a sore thumb.

A couple of people living in the house though find it difficult to warm up to Alex fully, until, one day, Alex is on the front porch alone and observes a raid going on down the street at another house. Alex alerts Chick and Chick alerts the others of the house, causing them to be more cautious about where they stash their drugs. Finally the two hippies who weren't sure of Alex, admit they, at first thought he might be a Narc, but now know differently. He becomes somewhat of a hero. Finally he fits in.
