Waiting for the Moon is like waiting for grass to grow. The plot centers around a sexy beautiful young woman who is infantilized by a head injury. Naturally there is a handsome narcissist doctor who is obsessed with recreating helpless, childlike Salena into an image to suit his fantasy. Under the confused speech and little girt innocence...there beats the heart and sexuality of a woman.............UGH! I didn't think they wrote books like this anymore. The story is replete with obvious cliche's designed to highten sexual tension...why there is even a ripped bodice in there somewhere! Please if you appreciate quality writing and good fiction...save your money. This book is not for the discerning reader.

Couldn't put this book down. Ian has to be one of my all-time favorite romantic characters: Tortured, flawed, alternatingly obsessive and despairing/hopeful and ardent - the only aspect of his character which I found disappointing was that he was likened to a blond Adonis (he should have been as dark and mysterious, like his tortured soul!)
Ian, a once successful doctor, developed a sort of "sixth sense" after an accident, which caused him to experience often upsetting visual images when touching his patients. Unable to cope with this so-called "gift," coupled with the fact that he is labeled a "mad doctor" and shunned by the community, he shuts himself away in Lethe, a sort of mini-mental institution, his mother being among the residents. Here Ian closes himself off physically and emotionally...until the day Selena, a "Jane Doe" nearly dead from an unsuccessful suicide attempt, is brought to his door. Selena first revives Ian's passion for medicine, then his ability to feel and to love.
I was disappointed that Ian never got any words/images when touching Selena which would have revealed something of her past life - didn't feel it was satisfactorily explained as to why he didn't. I also would have liked to have seen some sort of happiness or peace for Johann in the end.
Though peripheral characters sometimes clutter a story, I found the residents of Lethe intriguing.
The whole Shaker Bretheren bit with Elliot was rather anticlimatic - and I felt that Ian and Selena fell into bed with one another a little too easily. Overall, though, I found myself struggling to put the book down.

Waiting For The Moon is another tearjerker from Kristin Hannah in which the reader becomes totally absorbed into the characters and the story. Hannah's writing portrays true-to-life characters, which anyone can relate to due to the emotional depth of every single one of her characters. We suffer with them through the good and the bad and our box of Kleenex is never far from us!!!!
Hannah's books always portray a hidden message to the reader, yet all of her subtle messages are woven with hope and love. Despite the hurt and tragedies in all of our lives, love seems to always prevail and the sun does shine!! No exception with this story!
After an attempted suicide, Selena wakes up a completely different person from what she was, without any memories of her past. She weaves her innocent child-like magic of love with the other residents of Lethe House in Maine where she was brought to be healed. She affects every single life for the better in that house and rays of sunshine emerge for all, who are living in pain and misery.
With all of Hannah's books, you want a sequel and this book is no exception!! Wonderful love story without all of the mush and gush!!

Waiting for the Moon was an enchanting story by Ms. Hannah. As I have found in her other books, she weaves a spell which captures and draws the reader into her character's stories. When Selena and Ian reach a point in the story that goes against what you, as the reader, want to happen, it can break your heart. Ms. Hannah reminds us that even where love is concerned, the right choice must be made, not necessarily the choice you want to make with your heart. Her female characters are strong and her story lines make the reader wish our lives were even half as romantic. I'm eagerly awaiting more books by Ms. Hannah.
