CAPE GAZETIIg, Friday, Nov. 15 - Nov. 21, 2002 - 71 Cape Region native publishes first novel; book signing in Dewey "Untying the Knots" is now available through 1st Books Li- brary at www.lst and other online retailers such as "By writing this novel, I was able to identify personal weak- nesses and work on making them stronger," said Moore. "Though the story is fiction, I pay tribute to my family and home town of Re- hoboth Beach for providing me with captivating material. Fur- ther, I am indebted to my sister for her eonstant willingness to help me shine." Daria Lyn Moore, a 1995 grad- uate of Cape Henlopen High School and Rehoboth Beach na- tive, recently published her first novel, "Untying the Knots." The book is based on a true sto- ry, which takes place in a fictional town similar to Rehoboth Beach. A knot symbolizes a series of con- straints and restrictions that im- pede one's freedom of thought, feeling and action. Moore unrav- els a young girl's inhibitions in this tale about a daughter's strug- gle to break free from the cruel ties that bind her. Since she was 8 years old, Moore has used a journal as an emotional outlet. Now, her pas- sion for writing and the complex lives of family members have helped her to create her first nov- el. Moore takes readers to the bit- tersweet world of a family torn by a painful divorce. Her characters are familiar figures - the philan- dering husband, the unhappy wife, difficult siblings, and a miserable teenage daughter. In "Untying the Knots," a young daughter attempts to heal her anguish through poetry, which is interspersed throughout the book, while her older sister resorts to acting out physically, some- times violently. Moore relates her story through the eyes of the mother and youngest daughter. Her first-per- son account tells a compelling sto- ry of the hatred, confusion, misun- derstanding, and violence that grip a family in turmoil. One can- not help but cringe at the raw pain depicted in Moore's suspenseful scenes. However, amidst the chaos sur- rounding the family, tender mo- ments between mother and daugh- ter are revealed in sharp, heart- warming relief. Ultimately, read- ers rejoice with the characters as the family attempts to mend the rifts and stay together. A native of Rehoboth Beach, Moore received her bachelor of - science degree in communications from George Mason University in Virginia. A poet at just 13 years old, Moore published her first poem, "Moonlight Flight, " in the book Of Diamonds and Rust, Volume II, (copyright 1991 by The Na- tional Library of Poetry). She is an exhibit manager for an association in northern Vir- ginia. Moore currently resides in Annandale, where she is writing her second novel. Booksandcoffee, located in Ruddertowne at 113 Dickinson St. in Dewey Beach, is hosting a book signing. Moore will be au- tographing copies of "Untying the Knots" from 1 to 3 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 14.
