Jennifer Van Dyck’s formal, yet breathy enunciation of words adds an ethereal quality to her story-telling — it works perfectly for the spiritual nature of this novel. Even when the novel relies on the rare cliché, Van Dyck is able to make it sound fresh and interesting. She’s at her best when enacting Jenna’s character, but is able to put on a gruffer voice for male characters that are suitably believable. Her pauses between the alternating story lines are effective and keep the two from getting confused, otherwise the steady pace of her speech has a soothing nature.
A novel that eloquently juxtaposes American greed with Native American spirituality, Raven Stole the Moon is ultimately about getting through grief, searching for closure, and tapping into the unknowns that are the center of every human experience. —Colleen Oakley
Jenna Rosen returns to the place in Alaska where her young son, Bobby, disappeared without a trace two years before. Jenna is determined to lay to rest the aching mystery of his death. But ancient legends may have had a hand in Bobby’s fate, forcing Jenna to sift through her own Native American ancestry to uncover the truth.
Wrangell, Alaska, offers Jenna little comfort beyond the constant and tender attention of Eddie, a local fisherman. When ancient legends begin to suggest a frightening new possibility about Bobby’s fate, Jenna digs deeper into the menacing forces at work in the wilderness. A Tlingit shaman named Dr. David Livingstone warns Jenna not to disturb the legendary kushtaka—soul stealing predators that stalk a netherworld between land and sea, the living and the dead. But Jenna is desperate for answers, and she appeals to both Livingstone and Eddie to help her sort fact from myth, and face the unthinkable possibilities head-on.

Grief in it’s naked form. Loved this book and will read it again after just finishing. The details of Grief written only by someone who has gone through it.
