3 posts | 5 read | 2 to read
New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice transports readers across the sea in this moving, magical tale of a lonely woman with a promise to keep. Set in a landscape of stunning natural beauty, Light of the Moon is a chronicle of mothers and daughters, friendship and family, and an electrifying love that illuminates a path through heartbreak and lossand will shine in your memory long after the final page. Spurred by her mothers dying wish, Susannah Connolly has traveled from her lifelong home on the Connecticut shoreline to the fabled French Camargue, to see its famous white horses and find a mysterious saint linked to her familys history. An accomplished anthropologist, Susannah has always been confident of her ability to navigate anywhere on the globe. But in the wake of a failed love affair and grieving the loss of her mother, she is adrift and uncertain, seeking only time alone to dig deeply into the personal archaeology of her own life. American-born Grey Dempsey had come to the Camargue as a journalist, fell in love with a celebrated Romany rider, and suffered a devastating loss of his own. Now he operates a ranch as he struggles to raise his spirited but troubled young daughter who, after a terrible night years ago, fears the horses she once loved. Within their bittersweet private orbit, in the midst of the endless silvered marshlands, Susannah Connolly will find a part of herself she hadnt known she had lost. And here she will find herself embraced by a circle of strong and passionate women bound together by their abiding faith in the legendary slave-saint Susannah seeks and in the miracles she is said to still perform for those who believe. Yet old secrets swirl within the fog-shrouded landscape, betrayals that may be beyond the power of any saint, or supplicant, to repair. Singular, lyrical, Light of the Moon is Luanne Rice at her most spell-binding, as she exploresas only she canhow sometimes to find your way home you must travel far away. From the Hardcover edition.

🌔 I read this book 6 years ago so I‘m not 100% positive, but I think there‘s a cool #lighthouse part. I looked up the real life setting in France & there is a lighthouse there so I think I‘m right. In any case, I for sure remember loving this book so much!
✅ Also this summer I went to 2 lighthouses in Maine & got a lighthouse passport.
