Eva Marie Everson is known in the Inspirational Fiction community for the emotional journey she takes her readers on every time you pick up one of her novels. Her latest work "Slow Moon Rising" is no exception. I could not put this book down. I read it in one day. I just had to know what happened.
From the Back Cover:
One family, one secret--and one chance to make it right
The beautiful Claybourne home on Cedar Key has long been a place of rest, healing, and release. Each member of the family has turned there in times of confusion, loss, and hurt, only to feel their spirits renewed and their hearts restored.
But Cedar Key might also be the birthplace of a lie that is poisoning the family from within.
Join the five Claybourne women--Anise, Kimberly, Jayme-Leigh, Heather, and Ami--as they search the past and confront the truth. Their unique paths will lead them through heartbreak, misunderstandings, and pain. But their journeys will also bring reconciliation with each other and the precious renewal of love in their own lives.
Everson deals with betrayal and deep seated emotional scars among each of her charachters with a very gentle hand. I think it's one of the things that drew me into their stories. She does not shy away from playing out the consequences of lying and cheating but the way she weaves each change of POV was brilliant in my opinion. I also enjoyed the fact that there was no pre-packaged "happy ending". It was real and poignant and made the book all the better because if it.
I really enjoyed this book. Go buy it!! I give it:
4 cupcakes - It was delightfully delish and I would highly recommend it to others.
