Ahab's Wife: or, The Star-Gazer was inspired by some brief passages in Moby Dick, but is very much a wondrous world unto itself. In this ambitious and powerful novel with an unforgettable heroine, Naslund offers the story of Una Spenser from her childhood in Kentucky through a life of adventure and spiritual questing. She encounters a series of fascinating experiences that are by turns complex, romantic, horrifying, and ultimately fulfilling. A mesmerizing work. ~ Reviewed by Barbara Morrow
