As the tramp's kidnapping trial begins, and two desperate mothers fight for ownership of the boy, the people of Opelousas discover that truth is more complicated than they'd ever dreamed . . . Half Moon Lake is Kirsten Alexander's compelling debut novel, about the parent-child bond, identity, and what it means to be part of a family. 'A terrific premise, which becomes more than just a page-turning story; this is a complex and thought-provoking tale of the lengths we go to in order to save those close to us - and to save ourselves. I was gripped throughout.' Natasha Lester, author of The Paris Seamstress 'A gripping, nervy tale of identity, class and race, in which power and money triumph over truth ... a strong original narrative, with a central mystery and an intriguing plot.' Sydney Morning Herald 'Half Moon Lake is an evocative, unputdownable story about every parent's worst nightmare - losing a child ... Many times I wanted to step into the pages of this book to put things right - a sure sign of a compelling read. I highly recommend this novel.'
