Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In the wispy grasslands of Tanzania in the 1950s, a Maasai woman gives birth to a miracle. The other villagers see the baby as a curse. The baby-- a daughter, named Kibo-- has skin as white as bone, and from her first moments on earth, she is forced to claim her life in spite of the violence she incites. As she grows, Kibo sheds her identity to become Liloe, and then Po, continuously trying to adjust herself so that she can fit into the world around her. Further south, in Portuguese-controlled Mozambique, a young boy, Ezequiel, has been adopted by two missionaries. Zeca, too, struggles with a lack of acceptance. Not recognized by his Portuguese father's community, or by his Makonde mother's tribe, Zeca lives his life on the borders of both worlds. And when civil war erupts in Mozambique, Zeca must choose what-- and who-- he is willing to leave behind. An exploration of the costs of war, and a tender narrative of love and redemption, Children of the Moon is a startlingly truthful portrait of two outsiders, coming together in a time of momentous change.
