They don’t call themselves witches… they are simply the Moon girls.
Now and then I come across a book I just love. The Last of the Moon Girls is one of them. Not only is it a fascinating story, but it is written so well, it’s like a ‘comfy jumper’ giving you that snug, cosy warm feeling. This is a story on three levels. Firstly, it’s about being happy in your own skin, not being ashamed to be you, and well basically just going for it. Next, there’s a murder mystery that needs solving. Two young girls have been murdered and left in the Moon Girl Farm’s pond. The murderer is not known, but fingers are pointing, and tongues are wagging… well they were found on that farm, with those women. Lastly, the story as old as time, is love. And this is delicately and gently women into the other two points.
I was also happy to see that bestselling author Barbara Davis, has priced this book at $4.99/£3.29 and also put it in KU, so if you are a kindle unlimited member you can read it for free. So many bestselling authors list their e-books so high it irritates me, so kudos to Barbara for not being greedy.
A novel of secrets, memory, family, and forgiveness by the bestselling author of When Never Comes.
Lizzy Moon never wanted Moon Girl Farm. Eight years ago, she left the land that nine generations of gifted healers had tended, determined to distance herself from the whispers about her family’s strange legacy. But when her beloved grandmother Althea dies, Lizzy must return and face the tragedy still hanging over the farm’s withered lavender fields: the unsolved murders of two young girls, and the cruel accusations that followed Althea to her grave.
Lizzy wants nothing more than to sell the farm and return to her life in New York, until she discovers a journal Althea left for her—a Book of Remembrances meant to help Lizzy embrace her own special gifts. When she reconnects with Andrew Greyson, one of the few in town who believed in Althea’s innocence, she resolves to clear her grandmother’s name.
But to do so, she’ll have to decide if she can accept her legacy and whether to follow in the footsteps of all the Moon women who came before her.
