Winona Cole, an orphaned child of the Lakota Indians, grows up in an unconventional household on a farm in west Tennessee. Raised by her adoptive parents John Cole and Thomas McNulty, whose story Barry told in his acclaimed previous novel Days Without End, she forges a life for herself beyond the violence and dispossession of her past. Tennessee is a state still riven by the bitter legacy of the Civil War, and the fragile harmony of her family is soon threatened by a further traumatic event, one which Winona struggles to confront, let alone understand.

A Thousand Moons is a story of love and redemption, of one woman's determination to write her own future.


Customer Reviews

“A poetic sensibility runs through this luminous novel of sorrow and uplift by the Booker-nominated, multi-award-winning Barry. Highly recommended.”

— Library Journal (starred)

“[T]his beautifully rendered historical bildungsroman is equal parts thrilling and meditative.”

— Booklist

“In Winona, who sees both the beauty and the piercing loss of her world, Barry has created a vivid if didactic heroine . . . [W]ill satisfy fans of the first installment [Days Without End].”
