Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains during the summer of 1969, Moon Water follows Nettie, a gritty sixteen-year-old who is reeling from sucker punches coming from all directions. Her boyfriend since grade school wants to breakup just as they were beginning to figure out the sex thing, her life-long nemesis is jabbing her with perfectly polished nails, and her hell's fire and brimstone preacher refuses to baptize her. In the middle of all this turmoil, an old medicine woman for the Monacan Indians gives her a cryptic message about a coming darkness, a blood moon whose veiled danger threatens Nettie and those she loves. To prepare for the darkness, Nettie and her best friend, Win, have to build a mysterious dreamcatcher, one that requires scouring the perilous mountains for Nature's ancient but perfect elements.
