BOOK SPOTLIGHT & REVIEW: Two Tales of the Moon By Jennifer Sun

Two Tales of the Moon
By Jennifer Sun
Genre: Literary fiction

Two lives converge over a high stake international deal between U.S. and China - Will Donovan, a successful cyber technology business owner and Lu Li, a Wall Street investment banker. From New York City to Washington, DC, to Shanghai, together they have to face ethical dilemmas, make life choices, and come to terms with their past.

East meets West, past clashes with present. Blending romantic suspense with ethical intrigue. TWO TALES OF THE MOON is a compelling story that reveals that human struggle is the same regardless one's past or cultural upbringing.

Clarion/Forward gave the book a four star rating, calls it "a thoughtful portrait of a modern woman who must choose between the burden of memory and a future of her own making...the writing takes on the sharpened focus of a play... the work effectively captures the effects of communism in searingly personal ways. 

BlueInk Review says:

"Jennifer  Sun  draws  on  personal  knowledge  of  China  and  a  former  career  in telecommunications/finance  for  her  well-crafted  debut  novel  about  the  meeting  of  East  and West. Blending romance and  ethical  intrigue,  Two Tales of the Moon  is  a  unique  novel, with characters of psychological depth. 

My Review:

Two Tales of the Moon is a remarkable story where the history of east meets west through several generations. Lu Li struggles with traveling to China after her father and grandmother were persecuted there years earlier. Through this period she meets Will and connects with her mother and sister. A heart wrenching story of letting go in order to move forward. Five Stars.
