Moondance testimonials and reviews


“I have just finished Moondance which you kindly sent me via my sister and I felt I had to write to tell you how much I loved it. I haven't been able to put it down and felt it totally resonate for me. You deserve much success with it all over the world.”

Lynne Franks, Best-selling author and PR expert


“If you ever wondered how suffering can be understood, then Ms. Karen Black has a fresh vision that will not only break the cycle of old habits but open you up to a new paradigm of living where love, clarity, and understanding is more than possible.”

– Award-winning author of “The Changing River: A Meditative Fiction”, Dat Phan


“Moondance is visionary. This book follows its own path, as if paving the way to a new paradigm. It captures the vulnerability of the strong, contemporary, single woman in a way that is deep, honest and truly inspired with new thoughts about the human spirit. I relate to Althea on many levels. Moondance engrossed me completely. When I finished the last page, I had to tear myself away. The characters felt like new friends.”

– Sandra Bekhor MBA, B.Sc., President, Bekhor Management

A blend of two worlds

“It took me a grand total of four days to gobble up and polish off Moondance. A weekend course and visitors didn’t stop me... I went to bed late and arose early to silently cheer Althea in her search for happiness. We can all relate to/with the trials and tribulations of our heroine. But what really made Moondance stand out for me was how the worlds of business and astrology blended together so well. Normally one doesn't find the two topics holding hands in one book... although in our daily lives, many of us embrace both. So the book became very real for me. And that's why I didn't want to put it down.”

– Barbara Densmore, Professional Celebrant

Can't wait for the sequel

“I can't remember the last time I read a book that fast. I think sometimes writers make characters that are somewhat unbelievable, but the characters in your book where so real and I totally related to Althea. I can be very picky about books and can become bored with them easily, but I couldn't stop reading Moondance. I was very much emotionally touched reading the book too, and I actually cried. No book has ever made me cry before. I loved Moondance and can't wait for the sequel!”

– Pam Dickey, Teacher


“I love the depth, spirit and magic of Karen Black's first book, Moondance. It will resonate with your heart, challenge your sense of mystery and inspire your soul.

– Linda Brady, author of Discovering Your Soul Mission


“Moondance is the kind of book that not only entertains and keeps your heart involved, but also informs and keeps your head engaged. Karen skillfully weaves her themes together to create a moving, thought-provoking novel that will leave the reader thinking about the book long after it's finished. I thoroughly enjoyed this read!”

– Cynthia Barlow, author of Chicken Shift for the Soul


“Karen is an amazing writer - the characters became very real to me, and Moondance describes an amazing tale that incorporates many different ideas into one uniform concept. I'm in total awe of how she did it - I really, really enjoyed Moondance!”

– Angela Jennings, Executive Producer Fusion Television


A message left on Karen's voice mail (verbatim)

“Karen, it's Dee, I had to call and tell you I've just read the first 119 pages of your book and oh my God it's absolutely incredible... I don't want to put it down, it's your fault. Congratulations, I can't wait for the next page.”

– Dee Miller, Executive Director, Renewed Strength

Raw and gutsy

“Raw human emotion where desire collides with fear, fantasy interrupts, challenges abound and hope is restored. For the avid imagination and gutsy risk-taker. A ride for explorers of life's mysteries untold.”

– Linda Plater, Writer


“Moondance is a sensuous and thrilling exploration of the human heart. Deeply character driven and compassionate, it explores what it is to be on this earth and live life in an ever changing, complex and dynamic spiritual and natural world. Honest and realistic in its exploration of modern women and our layered relationships with our mothers, our friends, our careers, our spirituality and the many men who are involved along the way. In all, an amazing feat and an incredible read!”

– Ashleigh Hendry, Actor


“Moondance is beautiful and sensuous and explores many of the same questions I've been asking myself lately. Even though some of the conclusions Althea came to were different than I might have made, Moondance even left room for differences. I thoroughly enjoyed Moondance.”

– Alene Clark M.Ed., retired Child and Family Therapist

Emotionally rich

“In reading Moondance, I felt like I knew the heroine like a friend. I could feel her pain in the first scene, and then she falls in a rabbit hole. What a ride! With twists and turns I never expected. Doing the delicate dance with emotions is never easy, but Moondance makes it rich and entertaining. What a great read, I was on the edge of my seat. Althea and Michael have this air of restrained optimism which make them all the more human. Karen Black is a true story teller.”

– Roxanne Embleton, Patient Advisor


“I thoroughly enjoyed reading Moondance. I found the characters absorbing and I especially enjoyed all the information about tarot cards, and what they mean. This book was spellbinding and the romance and inter-relationships kept my interest.”

– Sue Spivak, Traffic Co-ordinator (Global Television)

A delight

“Moondance is engrossing, and an absolute delight to read. From the first few pages, I was swept into the emotional and spiritual journey of Althea Brecht.”

– Brenda Girdwood, Avid Reader
