Klappentext

Set in the turbulent period of Guam history, between the Spanish-American War and World War II, the lives and loves of three Chamorro women are told in vivid detail. A navy seaman leaves young Amanda de Leon broken hearted. For Sylvia de Leon Camacho, happiness ends too soon. Life teaches the level-headed Vivian Camacho that falling for an American serviceman is futile, like reaching for the moon. Cultural and racial prejudices magnify the distance. Trying to build a life with one is as impossible as building a mansion on the moon. Then a navy civil engineer comes into Vivian's life. Kirkus Review: The extensive cultural descriptions specific to Guam and its people add a depth and singularity…preventing this wartime romance from coming across as trite. While Gault tackles weighty political issues…she also manages to tell a story that is simultaneously wistful and uplifting. Blueink Review: …An engaging romance with wonderfully written and fully realized characters...The author's strong voice is never more evident than when she describes the...changes from a peaceful community and military outpost to an island ravaged by World War II…both stories are dramatic, heart-wrenching but eventually uplifting. Foreword Review: …The emotional power of the intricate tale carries the story…A Mansion on the Moon does not gloss over racial bigotry and prejudices, adding a realistic layer to this hopeful tale…Despite its tragic opening, the novel soars to dramatic heights as it illustrates that love can indeed conquer all…
