"Elizabeth Towles has a way with words. Although this cliche is often heard, it's never been more truer than it is in the case of THE LONG NIGHT MOON. This story is so much more than a romance. The author, with her gift for depth and description, takes you on a soul-deep tour of the NC hills. You meet her people, learn her ways, and at the same time, follow the the story of Darcie. Darcie is introduced to the reader as a headstrong teenager with few morals, and a stubborn desire to get what she wants from life. She has been thrown into a terrible introduction to tragedy, in the deaths of her parents, and responsibility, in an unwanted pregnancy.
When her older brother forces her to move to the 'country house', her life, and she, begin a metamorphosis which will leave you entranced, hopeful, angry, and at the end, ultimately fulfilled.
Travel with Darcie as she learns the ancient ways of the Cherokee people, and the heart-breaking joys of motherhood. Once you start reading THE LONG NIGHT MOON, you won't be able to put it down."

July 13, 2009. Read your book over the weekend-BRAVO! Obviously a lot of time and effort went into it. ENJOYED the read and the reminders of familiar things from my home state. I wish you all the success in the world for your book. A former NC resident.
I think your book is AWESOME! The story caught me right away, the descriptions put me into every scene, and the characters kept me reading. The book is so well written, I am pleased to say I've met the person who wrote such an extraordinary book. I loved it! James Dick, Branch Manager for Walmart, Albemarle Rd, Charlotte, NC
Willie Towles accents this romantic account with wonderful glimpses into the spiritual lives of her Cherokee characters, and paints a wondrous portrait of the beautiful North Carolina hills. Her words are colorful and lively, deep and emotional, and I guarantee that they will keep you page-turning until you reach the end.

"I read the final draft of this story in the beautiful North Carolina Mountains one weekend. It was difficult to put Elizabeth's book down and on reading the last page, I wanted to immediately pick up her next book."--Virginia G. Sykes, licensed Marriage & Family Therapist.
A note from me--ET.
I sincerely hope when this book is read, the people, and the story remains in the heart of the reader. Elizabeth Towles

"So you've met 'The Watcher'. When was this?"
"Well, he came here on the day you left with Nunda, wait a minute. What did you call him? The Watcher? Are we talking about the same man?" Her eyes mimicked his.
"We are. That's what my people, and others, call him. He seems to have a third eye that sees things...guiding him where's trouble, especially in the last few years."
"I don't think we're talking about the same person, " Darcie said, shaking her head.
"Tall, skinny, drives a Bookmobile?" He saw the doubt still on her face. "Years ago, he showed up in town driving an old Volkswagen loaded with books. His story was that his mother, a librarian, died, leaving him with thousands of books. He lent them without charge and people soon got used to him. He seems harmless enough, but..."

"You just made that up, " she punched him.
"No," he shook his head. "No, the legend of The Long Night Moon has been..."'
"Sssh, I'm not talking about that part, it's the lovers' thing. And you did, too...make it up."
"What makes you say that?"
"I saw your right eye twitch," she snickered. "It does that when you're teasing me."
"Okay, little Miss-Know-It-All; but it sounds right...don't you think?"
