“HOW THE DEER MOON HUNGERS by Susan Wingate is well worth reading…I would strongly recommend this book to people in their late teens and upward.” ―Jo Niederhoff, San Francisco Book Review


"From the ashes rises the phoenix. As a family descends into an abyss of pain, so Mackenzie fights to discover her own way out of the overwhelming circumstances of her sibling's death. Susan Wingate is gifted at capturing these shifting nuances as events continue to pull characters apart and put them back together like puzzles, albeit in a different way. HOW THE DEER MOON HUNGERS carries the reader through this process, creating a powerful and memorable saga that is hard to put down and lingers in the mind long after the story is over." -Diane Donovan, Senior Editor, Midwest Book Review


"A sister story that will last the ages."
