BLUE MOON BAY
Every Once in a Blue Moon Your Heart Waits at a Crossroads
For Seattle architect Heather Hampton, a trip back to tiny Moses Lake, Texas, is hardly in the plan. Yet because a promotion hinges on the sale of the family farmland, Heather heads to the last place she ever wanted to go. She's determined to return home, signed contract in hand, the next day.
But the currents of Moses Lake take visitors on unexpected journeys. As Heather's stay lengthens, she discovers a family steeped in secrets and an unexpected connection to local banker Blaine Underhill, despite his opposition to Heather's project. With each new revelation and question, Heather can't help but wonder if the handsome banker--and the family she has come to know again--are crooks or crusaders. Somehow she must find out the truth before she loses everything she has worked for and everything she's found on the shores of Moses Lake.
Riveting drama told in first person. This book is layer-deep in plot and character development. Complicated and moving with an unexpected thread of suspense that had me skimming ahead in my urgent need to find out what happened.
Rich in life lessons, I found myself as moved by wonderful pieces of wisdom as Heather was. In fact, I struggled even as she struggled through her emotionally skewed past. I marked passages that had a profound effect on me so that I can find them again and take some time to absorb them. This book left me thinking -- stretching both emotionally and spiritually. There's a wonderful Mennonite thread in its pages as well and I definitely profited from Ruth's plain truths.
In short, this book has it all -- emotional depth, inspirational hope, page-turning drama and a budding romance. What more can you ask of a book?
