This story is quite beautiful, with many twists and turns, many dreams and nightmares, many secrets to be kept and that are revealed. An amazing story I read first in sections as she wrote them, in a small collective of very lucky audience members.

It has witches, werewolves, kings, and magical jewelry and spells. And truths as deep an as powerful as the universe. I recommend it to everyone. ( )

THE POPPET AND THE LUNE is an original fairy tale about a patchwork girl and a boy who cried wolf... and became one. The witch who made the patchwork girl died before she could give her creation a name. Stitched together from the remains of the villagers’ dead children—whose memories still live in her flesh—and held together by a ring made of moonbeams, the patchwork girl is a spell as yet unfinished. She can never be what her parents wanted her to be: a replacement for the children they’ve lost. So when the poppet grows up, and grows tired of being a disappointment, she decides to embark upon a journey through the Everwood Forest in search of her real name. In the forest she meets Faolin, a newly made wereman (a man trapped as a wolf except during the full moon) running from the beasts who killed his father, and stole his throne as Wolf King. He joins the patchwork girl on her journey, and she promises to assist him in his own quest to become human again and return to his fiancée. Together, they face the dangers of the forest, forming an unlikely bond as their paths wind together: Faolin running from his destiny—the patchwork girl in search of her own—both of them bound by moonlight. But Faolin, afraid of the beast he has become, has known all along what he must do in order to lift the curse and return to his fiancée-in fact, it is the very reason he sought out the patchwork girl to begin with. But now, since he's come to care for the girl unlike any other he's known, his cure has the very reason why he must leave her: to protect her from himself.
