Silver Moon (By the Light of the Moon #3) By Jenny Knipfer Christian Historical Fiction Paperback & ebook, 411 Pages June 30, 2020

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!

Praise for the Book

Taking an original angle on a tumultuous time in history, Silver Moon by Jenny Knipfer is a sparkling slice of historical fiction. Ambitiously detailing a diverse collection of characters, this World War I story bounces across space and time, delicately filled with vivid descriptions, nuanced moral dilemmas, and authentic relationships…” —Self-publishing Review

Silver Moon is a highly recommended read for fans of historical wartime fiction, powerful emotive drama, and excellent atmospheric writing.” —Readers’ Favorite

“I am stunned by the amount of detail the author gave in this single story. On one hand, we have powerful characters… and on the other, we have a plot that demands all our attention. Jenny Knipfer pulls no punches and holds nothing back.” —Readers’ Favorite


Silver Moon is the third book in By the Light of the Moon series by Jenny Knipfer. Being set in WWI, the story is a bit heart wrenching at times because the men are off at war while the women and family staying behind find themselves struggling at to survive as they await news from those at war.

I enjoyed a visit with the characters from the first two books, as well as the new characters we are introduced to. There are lot of characters and a lot going on in this story and it was hard when I had to put this book down because I wanted to keep reading! I enjoyed the way this author weaves together everything in this story, the characters, history, plot, and gives an ending that we were waiting for. I also enjoyed how faith had a vital part in this story. Patients and forgiveness is sure a big part of this story.

Though this is part of a series, it can be read oo as a standalone. But reading the books together gives you a better outlook on the series, as well as helps with all of the characters in this book, Silver Moon. There are lots of characters, but each has their own unique part in the story and they all play their parts so well. This is a very well written book. Jenny Knipfer is a new author for me, one I will definitely keep contact with. And I can’t wait for the fourth book in this series, Harvest Moon! If you enjoy historical stories, war stories or both, you are covered here. Ms. Knipfer does her research well and it shows on every page of this book. And I have to say, throughout reading this book, I kept singing By the Ligjt of the Silvery Moon! The song is still in my head!

A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
