Publisher's Summary

Texan Mike Blakely is the best-selling author of Comanche Dawn and a co-editor of Forever Texas. Moon Medicine is the story of a boy genius with a peculiar sensitivity to lunar cycles.

Jean-Guy lives in a school for boys in France until he murders his vile fencing teacher for raping a woman. He is smuggled aboard a Clipper ship bound for America—the place where he knows he will find the visions of his dreams. Featuring a masterful narration by Joel Leffert, this story is an excellent yarn, with an old-time feel and strong western flavors.

Interesting I didn't say entertaining

Not a fan of this reader ... Story while original it wasn't exciting, suspenseful , or filled with mystery...it was just an old west story

Engaging story, Fabulous Narrator

This saga of the West captured me from the first paragraph thanks in large part to the superb narration by Joel Leffert. Having seen many of the actor's wide ranging roles, I knew his performance would be engaging. I was quickly convinced I was listening to Honore's tale from his own lips as we traveled from France to and across the US. Leffert brought all of the characters distinctively alive. Another narrator might have handled the detailed passages more dryly, but Leffert's performance made all of the book fascinating, including the making of adobe bricks. I highly recommend this book and narrator.

Fantastic and original!

I have kept this book downloaded since 2018 so its always ready to go, because its one of the best books I've ever read. It has something for everyone. Last week we lost power for a day and had no internet/ electricity. Even my teenage kids huddled around my tablet that night and hung on every word! I could go on and on... Just give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
