Summary:
A splendid debut collection of speculative fiction that traverses the connections between earth and the heavens, the living and the spectral, human and animal. In "Cosmic," a former drug addict has a chance to redeem herself and restore honor to her family's name. In "Harvest," a woman tasked with providing for her community ponders her inability to bear live children. In the title story, "Two Moons," a young woman falls in love with the moon, and is astonished by the moon's response. In "What the Heart Wants," a rejected lover discovers that her physical and emotional desires are incongruent with the organ pumping blood through her veins. Sensitive, ethereal, humorous, and at times, heart-breaking, Smith's collection of speculative fiction signals the arrival of an exceptionally talented writer with a promising career ahead of her.
