This suspenseful sequel to “One More Last Dance” follows Peck Finch’s search for his mother after leaving home at the age of nine, and the struggles of his friend Gabe, who is simultaneously facing a second-degree murder charge. Set within the rich and storied culture of Louisiana, this tale of self-discovery explores important questions about the meaning of love, friendship, family and more.
“Mamma’s Moon” has received early praise for its layered storytelling with BlueInk Reviews calling Antil’s newest work “a lovely story about the strong bonds of friendship that often supplant family ties.”
I loved the setting of the story and how authentic it seemed to Louisiana.
The cast of characters were all so unique as well. I loved the many different types of people involved in the story, especially the a little bit crazy ones. :)
Peck and Gabe have such a tight bond that you can really see through the story-telling. Their friendship is really highlighted here and it really makes you take a step back and hope that you have someone in your life that would be there for you in the same capacity as Peck is for Gabe.
Unravel the mystery right along with the characters. You'll be surprised.
So many wonderful nuances to this story and so many themes all put together. Jerome Mark Antil really manages this seamlessly and it's a wonderful piece of writing.
