"Time and again, New York Times bestselling author Karen White has proven herself to be the "ultimate voice of women's fiction."* Now you can revisit the emergence of her signature style in two of her earliest novels--completely revised and together in one volume for the first time. In the Shadow of the Moon -- When Laura Truitt first sees the dilapidated plantation house, she's overcome by a sense of familiarity. Inside, the owner claims to have been waiting for her for years and offers an old photograph of a woman with Laura's face. Soon afterward, when a lunar eclipse inexplicably thrusts Laura back in time to Civil War Georgia, she finds herself fighting not just for her heart, but for her very survival.... Whispers of Goodbye -- Alone and with nothing left to fear, Catherine deClaire Reed answers her sister's desperate plea and travels to the cold comfort of her home in Reconstruction Louisiana. But Elizabeth is nowhere to be found. No one--including her husband--has seen her for days. Now Catherine must search for her sister in a place where secrets wait behind every closed door..."--… (lisätietoja)

I really enjoyed reading Karen White's first two books! Whispers of Goodbye is more in keeping with some of her other books, but In the Shadow of the Moon was interesting as well. Both are set during/after the Civil War. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Spinning the Moon by Karen White. Normally I am not a fan of historical fiction but these books were the exception. I did prefer the the first book out of the two. I found her writing to be refreshing and enjoyable. I loved her characters! ( )

I received Spinning the Moon from LibraryThing for review. I had previously read White's novel Flight Patterns and loved it. This audiobook is actually her first two books, all spiffed up and republished into one. I really loved the first story, I think because of the time travel element to it. The second story was very interesting but didn't quite grab me like the first one did.

The stories are wonderful historical fiction tales, set in the Civil War time. I also enjoyed the narrators of both stories. Their narrations were enough different from each other so it made it easy to believe I was listening to two different stories. They both did a great job with the different characters and made the stories come alive for me. ( )

This is book one in a collection of 2 classic Karen White novels. During a Lunar Eclipse Laura Truitt travels back to Georgia near the end of the Civil War. She shows up at the precise place her daughter (in the present) went missing. She searches for her daughter sure this is where she must have traveled to as well. Her arrival is suspect. A kind family takes her in with secrets and suspicions of their own. How far is Laura willing to go to get her daughter back and as well as get back to her own time? She soon finds herself fighting for her life in order to get back to her previous life. Susan Bennett narrates both the female and male voices well with just enough accent to thrust the listener into the story.

Whispers of Goodbye - Whispers of Goodbye - Catherine gets a letter from her sister in New Orleans asking her to come that she needs her and is so afraid. When she arrives her sister is not at home and no one knows where she has gone. As Catherine waits for her return strange things begin to happen that make her question what she has been told. Did Elizabeth leave or was she taken? Who in the house has it out for her? Can she trust anyone? Atmospheric with a mystery that I didn't see until the very end. Pilar Witherspoon narrated Catherine's voice with just the right amount of desperation and confusion that kept me wanting to know what happened to Elizabeth. ( )

Ugh. I had a really hard time with this book. I couldn't get through the second book so my review is for the first one, In the Shadow of the Moon. It's a poor imitation of Outlander. Woman accidentally travels in time, into the past during a war, ends up staying with a family, and falls in love with the wounded war hero. She's accused of being a spy, needs to get back home, blah blah blah. The war is the Civil War and the soldier is a Confederate soldier. The worst part of all this is, the main character, a modern day woman, actually defends slavery! I was disgusted. And I've noticed that Karen White has this tendency to stereotype the characters in her books. All the southerners are hardworking, passionate people of integrity while the northerners are cold, ruthless, and heartless. I can't even count the number of times I rolled my eyes. The worst part of the book was (SPOILER AHEAD!) that when the main character found her missing daughter, the one who had disappeared through time, she not only didn't recognize her, she decided to leave her behind! No sane person would do that. Definitely skip this one. ( )
