Sometimes fate strikes in unexpected ways.
Lucy Dalton was tired of living a life she didn't want. Charlie Mathews was living the life he always wanted.
But one night, fate changes the course of their lives forever. A year later, Lucy and Charlie's paths meet again, igniting a spark neither can deny.
Lucy knows he doesn't remember her, but she's already in too deep. Charlie knows the unwritten family rule: Mathews men never admit when they're broken.
Can they leave the past where it belongs and find a way to look beyond the orange moon?
Get your tissues ready. ItÔÇÖs a sad poetic beginning to end an era. We meet Charlie again (for those of you who have read the first book, Under the Orange Moon) as he is struck down in the middle of what should be one of the most amazing miracles of his life. Fate has turned the table and cracks it in two. Lucy is there to witness the devastation, a silent observer. She is just as rocked by this horrible twist of fate, irrevocably changing her life.
Fast forward one year later, and fate once again intervenes. A chance encounter at a park. A coffee and muffin. Charlie and Lucy meet once again, but only Lucy remembers. She falls hard, and she falls fast. Both of them feel the sparks, but Lucy is holding back her secret observation of his tragic pain; she doesnÔÇÖt want to a reminder of it. She has started to heal and take life into her own hands. ThereÔÇÖs a chance at real happiness.
Charlie is going through the motions of lifeÔÇöwork, family, sleep, repeat. Outside of his son, there is no ÔÇ£joie de vivreÔÇØ. Until Lucy. He feels alive again, and he wants to see where this will go. But, as we know, life has plenty of ups and downs. Can Charlie and Lucy make it work or will fate throw them another curve ball?
FrancesÔÇÖ distinctive style and storytelling are once again showcased in this novel.┬á She has you eager to turn the page, feeling the highs and lows alongside the characters. In signature fashion, she brings back all members of the family as they help their loved ones try to navigate the landscape of the heart. By the time you reach the last page, youÔÇÖll be beyond the orange moon for Charlie and biting your lip in anticipation to bond with the other family members.
5 shining stars hung from the moon!
