Publisher's Summary

Strange things are happening in King's Harbour. Midwife Maggie Wilson vows to find the person who almost murdered her sister. When her sister’s behavior ignites old superstitions, the townspeople threaten to send her to an asylum. Maggie turns to handsome Ian for help in a town where everybody is against her. Apothecary Ian Pierce wants nothing more than to feel whole, as he does when he is near the beautiful midwife, singing to her soul with his music. Only then can he forget the horrors from his past when false accusations sent him to Bedlam. When they unearth the deeds of a sinister killer, Ian’s most daunting battle will be to safeguard his sanity . . . and win Maggie’s heart.

Interesting historical mystery and romance

Would you listen to Mercy of the Moon (Rhythm of the Moon) again? Why?

It's a well written, well researched piece of historical fiction.

The characters are relatable and well developed throughout the book. You understand their actions because you end up understanding them as people.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mercy of the Moon (Rhythm of the Moon)?

I'll try not to spoil it by writing about the actual moments. But I enjoyed the characters interactions, the affectionate moments between the characters.

I also really enjoyed the hints of paranormal, which brings even more mystery to the story.

The main character, Maggie, is a wonderful person that knows and does what is right every time. Spending years without romantic love, we are able to see her first and most powerful love story happen and how she reacts to it.

Ian's also a fantastic character, his flaws and history of mental illness is different and something not often seen.

What does Rebecca McKernan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Rebecca does a great job reading the book - she uses different voices and accents for different characters, so they are easier to picture.

Any additional comments?

It really is a different type of a romance novel, as the reader is invested in the love story as much as in the murder/killer mystery happening to and around them. Very well written, the language feels authentic to the time period. Recommend!

Great listen!

Intriguing story and characters, I was hooked from start to finish. Fantastic narrator too, I loved listening to her performance! I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.
