***Guarding the Moon

A Mother's First Year

by Francesca Lia Block

Reviewed May 25, 2003.
HarperResource, New York, 2003.  182 pages.

Guarding the Moon is a love song from a mother to her baby.  This isn’t a formal, chronological journal of a baby’s first year.  It’s more of a series of meditations on motherhood and the precious gift of a baby.  It’s a reminder of the wonder of a newborn, and makes uplifting reading.  A different kind of a love story.
