moon over edisto
Once, they were the happiest family under the sun, crabbing and fishing and painting on beautiful Edisto Island in South Carolina’s lowcountry.Then everything went wrong, and twenty years later the Bennett family is still in pieces. Mary Ellen still struggles to understand why her picture-perfect marriage came apart. Daughter Meg keeps a death grip on her own family, controlling her relationships at a distance. And eldest daughter, Julia, left it all behind years ago, forging a whole new life as an artist and academic in Manhattan. She’s engaged to an art dealer and has no intentions of returning to Edisto. Ever.Then an emergency forces Julia back to Edisto to care for her three young half-siblings. She grudgingly agrees to stay a week. But there’s something about Edisto that changes people. Can Julia and her fractured family somehow manage to come together again under that low-hanging Edisto moon?Moon over Edisto is an amazing read, one that grabs you from the beginning and doesn’t let you go until the very last word. I enjoyed reading every page of it and it was amazing and very thought provoking, something I feel every novel should have at its base. I started reading this book and it was so hard not to read it all the way into the night until it was finished. I enjoyed it that much and it had a grip on me few stories do, but love when they do! I would recommend this book to lovers of Christian fiction and Fiction with redemption at the roots.I really enjoyed this title and i think you will too. I rate it 5out of 5 stars.I received this book for review and was not made to write a positive review, only to voice my opinion on the book, I received this book from Thomas Nelson Publishiers.
