Last summer I read a book that I truly loved called The MoonQuest by Mark David Gerson. I have always loved fantasy but as a professional singer/songwriter/storyteller this book held extra magic for me. In the world of The MoonQuest bards and stories have been banned and Toshar must undertake The MoonQuest in order to restore the power of story to the world.
His grandmother, Eulisha, is the character who most captured my imagination and who inpired this song. She is the one to tell him about The MoonQuest. After they talk, she places an amulet under his pillow as he sleeps. I wondered what she would do as he slept, as he decided whether he would take up the quest or not.
I believe she would sing and pray and send her love and power ahead of him into the unknown. That is the purpose for this song.
If you love fantasy, as I do, I hope you will add The MoonQuest to your summer reading list. I know I will be reading it all again from my hammock. You can get a copy on Amazon or signed by the author at http://www.markdavidgerson.com/moonquestbook.html
