We're launching the Book & Bookstagram Tours for SILVER MOON by Jenny Knipfer! #SMBkTour

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Author Interview

What inspired you to write SILVER MOON? 

Silver Moon is the third book in a four-part series and follows the story of the children of some of the characters in Blue Moon, about twenty years after Blue Moon leaves off. When I had finished Blue Moon, I knew I was going to write about Luis and Oshki, but I didn’t know how to start until one day I went fishing with my husband to our favorite backwater slough on a cool autumn day and inspiration struck. As I watched the cool water swirl in front of me, I wondered what it would be like to be submerged in that tempestuous liquid, fighting for my life. I set down my fishing pole and wrote the opening prologue to Silver Moon. 

If you could sum the book up in one sentence, what would you say? 

It’s a tale of courage and hope in the darkest of times. 

What challenged you about writing this story? 

I set Silver Moon during WWI, and I knew next to nothing about that time period and even less about Canada’s involvement in the war. I did a lot of research, but I enjoy learning about history. I hope I represent the war accurately and believably through the men from Webaashi Bay, Ontario, Luis, Oshki, and Jimmy, who fight on the Western Front in various roles. 

Which character do you most relate to and why? 

In this book compared to the others, my life has less reflective quality in the characters’ direct experiences. I have never been in the kind of situations during wartime that my characters faced, but I fight against a kind of war every day. I have MS, and my health is a constant battle that never lets up. The voice which spoke to me the most as I wrote was Luis, the main protagonist. 

Luis struggles with his identity as a spy and who he is as a person. He gets lost in translation, so to speak, but finds his way back with the help of friends, loved ones, and a little faith. After the fact, he has a hard time justifying the choices he had to make during his time as an active spy. 

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it? 

I hope readers will know that even on the most difficult of days, there is hope. 

What is something about you that is unique or we may not know? 

I started my series, By the Light of the Moon, twenty years ago, but with work and family life got busy. I set aside the first book, Ruby Moon, after about five chapters and didn’t pick it up again until 2018 when I had to quit my job as a floral designer due to increased disability from MS. Wondering what to fill my time with, I thought of the book I’d started many years prior and resurrected it from the depths of an old computer. 

I would have never guessed then that I would be here today—three books published and many more waiting to be. It just goes to show that sometimes the best things in life happen when we get side-tracked by unforeseen circumstances.

A tale of courage and hope in the darkest of times...

Silver Moon, the third book in the series: By the Light of the Moon, paints a stunning and poignant picture of life on the home front in Webaashi Bay, Ontario, and of three men who are a part of the Canadian Expeditionary Force during WWI.

Shamed into joining the war, the tide turns for Luis Wilson when he is steered into the depths of espionage. Injured and presumed missing, will he lose his heart to the very woman who presented him with a white feather?

Oshki and Jimmy offer a grim perspective on life in the trenches. They despair of ever returning home to the women who hold their hearts.

Meanwhile, Lily fights for the cause in her own way and rallies the female troops at home as prejudices run high and the local cafe owner is accused of being a spy.

Will the women of Webaashi Bay receive their men back unscathed? Can the power of love win out over insurmountable odds? All this drama and more plays out under the light of a silver moon.
Fans of WWI historical fiction, Christian historical fiction, and literary fiction will find Silver Moon a moving, powerful read!
