On September 11, 2001, a gang of Islamic fundamentalists hijacked four passenger jets, turned them into gigantic bombs, and deliberately crashed into the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., murdering thousands of innocent people.
Two days later, the Reverend Jerry Falwell appeared on The 700 Club, which is broadcast on national television and hosted by the Reverend Pat Robertson.
"I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way—all of them who have tried to secularize America—I point the finger in their face and say, ‘You helped this happen,’" Falwell said.
"Well, I totally concur," Robertson said, "and the problem is we have adopted their agenda at the highest levels of our government."
Brother Mudge is a fictitious character, created to be the antagonist in this novel. Mr. Falwell and Mr. Robertson are real people who claim to speak for the same jealous god to whom the Islamic fundamentalists sacrificed themselves and thousands of Americans. How can fiction possibly equal the hate that extremists acted on during that week?From the Inside Flap:
It is always a pleasure to read Barbara Ardinger's writing because of her wit, pithiness, and perfect sense of timing. In Quicksilver Moon, this pleasure is multiplied as she deftly captures the rhythms and quirks of speech in a host of diverse characters. There are the down-to-earth, tender, and sometimes contentious voices of the women in Quicksilver Moon and their extended ecumenical community and, in sharp contrast, the terrifying, hypnotic, Bible-banging rants of Brother Mudge as he preaches to his captive flock. Pulsing through the entire story like a heartbeat on a doumbek is the fierce, majestic voice of six-hundred-year-old Isolde Bell, the most soulful vampire you will ever meet in literature--or life.
--Elizabeth Cunningham, author of Daughter of the Shining Isles, Volume One of The Magdalen Trilogy.
