Generations of the Moon
Beautifully written novel of separation and sacrifice, loss and lovelessness. Quinn is highly acclaimed an award-winning children's author and an award-winning radio producer. This is his first adult novel. It is a classic story of nature working against nurture. The family becomes separated, not just by a political boundary, but by divisions of suspicion, mustrust, and ultimately, hatred, with terrible results for all concerned.
