The New Moon's Arms is a dance of lost-and-found. Hopkinson knows not to get too sentimental, thanks in large part to her heroine's unsinkable sense of humor. It let me hear the mermaids singing.-- "Washington Post Book World"
A most impressive work...vivid and richly nuanced, utterly realistic yet still somehow touched with magic.-- "Toronto Star"
Considerable talent for character, voice, and lushly sensual writing...her most convincing and complex character to date.-- "Locus"
Hopkinson has had a remarkable impact on popular fiction...[Her] work continues to question the very genre she adopts, transforming them from within through her fierce intelligence and her commitment to a radical vision that refuses easy consumption...With sly humor and great tenderness, [she] draws out the hope residing in age and change.-- "Toronto Globe and Mail"
Shows new depths of wisdom, humor, and insight...Like life, Hopkinson's novel doesn't resolve every mystery. But Hopkinson has answered the essential questions in The New Moon's Arms, and she's wise enough to know we need nothing more.-- "Seattle Times"

The storyline of the `people of the sea' was a little unbelievable, but not inconceivable, and that added to the intrigue of wanting to know where Agua (the boy that Calamity `fosters') appeared from and how she was going to get him back.
It was an interesting book with many parts to it; her menopause, the death of her father and the disappearance of her mother all entwined with her volatile relationship with her daughter and the love for her grandson, and strangely enough Agua the `boy from the sea'.
