LIGHT OF THE MOON: GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
LIGHT OF THE MOON

BY LUANNE RICE

ABOUT THE BOOK:

New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice transports readers across the sea in this moving, magical tale of a lonely woman with a promise to keep. Set in a landscape of stunning natural beauty, Light of the Moon is a chronicle of mothers and daughters, friendship and family, and an electrifying love that illuminates a path through heartbreak and loss…and will shine in your memory long after the final page.

Spurred by her mother’s dying wish, Susannah Connolly has traveled from her lifelong home on the Connecticut shoreline to the fabled French Camargue, to see its famous white horses and find a mysterious saint linked to her family’s history. An accomplished anthropologist, Susannah has always been confident of her ability to navigate anywhere on the globe. But in the wake of a failed love affair and grieving the loss of her mother, she is adrift and uncertain, seeking only time alone to dig deeply into the personal archaeology of her own life.

American-born Grey Dempsey had come to the Camargue as a journalist, fell in love with a celebrated Romany rider, and suffered a devastating loss of his own. Now he operates a ranch as he struggles to raise his spirited but troubled young daughter who, after a terrible night years ago, fears the horses she once loved.

Within their bittersweet private orbit, in the midst of the endless silvered marshlands, Susannah Connolly will find a part of herself she hadn’t known she had lost. And here she will find herself embraced by a circle of strong and passionate women bound together by their abiding faith in the legendary slave-saint Susannah seeks and in the miracles she is said to still perform for those who believe. Yet old secrets swirl within the fog-shrouded landscape, betrayals that may be beyond the power of any saint, or supplicant, to repair.

Singular, lyrical, Light of the Moon is Luanne Rice at her most spell-binding, as she explores—as only she can—how sometimes to find your way home you must travel far away.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Luanne Rice is the author of twenty-seven novels, most recently The Geometry of Sisters, Last Kiss, Light of the Moon, What Matters Most, The Edge of Winter, Sandcastles, Summer of Roses, Summer’s Child, Silver Bells, and Beach Girls. She lives in New York City and Old Lyme, Connecticut. To read more about the life of this amazingly talented author, go HERE.

First of all, I love Luanne Rice's books. She is a wonderful author. I visited her site just now. I had the chance to learn she is very aware of seasonal changes. Plus, she loves art. I also love Winslow Homer. The painting "a summer night" is very moving and expressive of emotion, I think.

I found it interesting that she stated that she never studied writing. She said, "My mother encouraged me from the time i was young (so i also attribute them to her.)" She went on and stated that she dropped out of college where she was majoring in art history. I would say the old adage practice makes perfect really works. I wonder how many other writers have had little professional writing training. I am glad that she has been successful and this book sounds like an interesting read. Thanks for hosting this contest.
