Mystick Moon by Terry L White

Tell us about your heroine --- the female lead in your book.

What's her name?

Why did you pick that name?
It was a commonly used name for the times.

Give us a brief description of how she looks.
Rebecca is a child of wealth who has journeyed to New England where she lives a hard life taking care of her mother and raising herself against all odds. Her stepfather abuses her and leaves her alone much of the time. She has a pretty face with worried eyes and wears her dead mother’s cut-down clothing and the skins of animals she and her servant catch to eat.

Is there anything unusual about her appearance?
Rebecca looks like she had to grow up far before her time.

Who does she love? Why?
Rebecca loves her mother. She loves the Pequot woman, Squirrel because Squirrel teaches her how to survive. She also loves Adam, a young boy who befriends and helps her, and his mother Anneke.

Does this person love her?
These people all love Rebecca. Adam loves her as a boy and returns from a time at sea to love her as a man.

Tell us about her family.
Rebecca is alone in the world. Her mother died in childbed and her stepfather abandoned her. Her servant Squirrel is the closest thing to a family member she has.

Where is she from?
She is originally from London and lives in colonial Mystic Connecticut.

Does her hometown affect her behavior, thoughts and attitude?
The people of Mystick want Rebecca to go to church and school as they do, but she is much too concerned with survival. She is only befriended and loved by people who are as different as she. The townspeople call her a witch and accuse her wrongly.

What does she want out of life?
Rebecca wants a home and to be loved.

What's her biggest secret?
Rebecca has developed more than one personality and the other persons inside her help her survive.

Did you write more than one story about her?
No. One was it.

How would she describe you?
I don’t think Rebecca would know what to make of me. Our worlds are too different. She would probably think I am a witch!

Is there anything else about your heroine that we need to know? Feel free to share.
Rebecca doesn’t give up, even when facing death, and she never stops believing in love.
