The Eclipse Dancer by Laura Koerber is, as I expected, another original story with plenty of thought provoking content. Ms. Koerber weaves magical realism with deft fingers, bringing complete believability to her work.
Andy has been through a lot in her life, and while nursing her dying mother, begins to reflect back on her life- telling her story which flashes back between the past and present, telling of the circle of life, the mother/daughter relationship, thought provoking details, melancholy/sad/emotive moments, sensitive topics, death/dying, choices, mysteries of life, and a little magic. The story is told with rich detail and descriptions, bringing everything to life before my eyes. It was like watching a movie play out on the screen.
Ms. Koerber has a lyrical, poetic feel to her writing which also adds to the atmosphere of her work, and making it very easy to read.
Another captivating story from this clever writer!
Thank you, Laura Koerber!
