Short Description

The narrator of A FACE IN THE MOON, Jack Lohman, is an inexperienced twenty-two-year old, who was recently dumped by his first real girlfriend, and is soon to leave graduate school for who knows what. Enter Loni, a bright-eyed, free-spirited seventeen-year old who has had more than her share of experience. From the moment Jack meets Loni, his life begins to change. She teaches him how to laugh, and makes him feel, for perhaps the first time in his life, that he can be loved without judgment. Yet, ironically, it is Loni's harsh self-evaluation that paralyzes her at times, turning this carefree, uninhibited soul into a listless young woman who laments the days when life used to be more fun.  A FACE IN THE MOON is a story about two young lovers struggling to find each other and their ways in the world. And when a series of events keeps them apart longer than expected it becomes the story of whether their new love can survive the pressures of such separation.

Book's Awards




In A Face In The Moon, Mitchell Waldman creates an interesting character study of two lost souls. The two main characters, Jack and Loni, are richly drawn, multi-faceted people with complex issues that bring them together and pull them apart. . . . This novel is full of riches, atmosphere and scenery, plot, excellent dialogue, and strong but flawed main characters delighted the senses of this reader. Other reviewers have called A Face In The Moon, "A Catcher In The Rye grown up." That very well may be true.  -- Michelle Tercha, at Selling Writing Online
