My rating: 4 of 5 stars
*I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
Whisper of the Moon Moth is enjoyable historical fiction based loosely around details of the life of Merle Oberon and several people she came in contact with or worked around historically. Having never heard of her I was intrigued. In the blurb I read before requesting the book I understood that this was a fictional account of her life so I wasn’t expecting the details of the book to be accurate so it didn’t detract from my overall rating. I think if you go into the book with some knowledge of Merle it might change your rating of the book because it does delve into her life and the psychology of various details in the cultural and professional context she did live in. If you take the book as a work of what amounts to fan fiction, I think it can be enjoyed.
