“Moon Over Edisto” Will Warm Your Heart


Julia has it all. She’s a successful artist in New York, well, making a living at least, and has a handsome British boyfriend. She’s heading away for a summer in Budapest and there may be a ring in her immediate future. Julia’s life is focused on the future, until her past decides to come calling. Faced with a request from a former friend turned bitterest enemy, can she step out of her comfort zone and go home to face her past? Does she owe any debt to the past and the woman who ruined her family?
“Moon Over Edisto” paints a picture of family at its best and worst. Beautifully told from multiple perspectives, there’s no escaping the pain that has been caused by what one character calls “Southern Gothic Dysfunction.” Each character has their own issues to face. As circumstances cast together an unlikely group, Julie discovers that sometimes the path that we least want to take is the very one that will lead us to our heart’s desire.
Altogether, “Moon Over Edisto” is a delightful read that blends good storytelling with doses of Southern charm. It’s suitable for readers at high school level and up.
