A good story with a few unexpected twists. If you've ever been to Broome you'll love the book as it gives a lot of the history of the region. ( )

The best book I have ever written. It had it all. I would read this book over and over and over again if given the chance. If you like history, you will love this book. If you want to learn about something new, you will love this book (the pearling industry). If you love travel, you will like this book. If you enjoy romance you will like this book. There is something for everyone in Tears of the Moon. I can not rave about it enough, however I have passed on all the copies I've ever been able to find to others who have appreciated it just as much as I have. A must read!!! ( )
