What's A Nearer Moon About

Publisher Summary

Long ago the dam formed, the lively river turned into a swamp, and the wasting illness came to Luna’s village, and now that her little sister is sick Luna will do anything to save her, even offer herself to the creature that lives in the swamp on the day of the nearer moon–a lonely and bitter water sprite who was left behind when her people fled through a door to another world.
