About the Book
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.
Praise for The Last of the Moon Girls
“The Last of the Moon Girls is an enchanting tale of letting go and finding forgiveness. A five-star must read.”- Bee Lee Crosby, bestselling author of Emily Gone
“Woven through the compelling mystery and suspense that keep the pages of The Last of the Moon Girls turning is a story of a powerful family legacy and the discovery of the best kind of magic—that of embracing our own gifts and finding our place in the world. A glorious, shimmering read that resonated in my soul long after I finished reading.”- Kerry Anne King, bestselling author of Everything You Are
“The Last of the Moon Girls is reminiscent of two of my all-time favorites, Sarah Addison Allen’s Garden Spells Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic, because it’s witchy, full of plant magic, and painfully human.”- Kristen Fields, bestselling author of Lily in the Light
“The Last of the Moon Girls is a fantastic blend of mystery and magic, with the perfect dash of romance… a story of family and forgiveness and what it truly means to come home. From the first page to the last, I was riveted by the fascinating, heartbreaking story of the many generations of Moon girls – and, like all the best novels, I was sad when I turned the last page.”- Jane Healey, bestselling author of The Beantown Girls
“Davis uses a fine brush to draw complex, colorful characters, including a fiercely independent protagonist whose greatest obstacle is her own self-limiting beliefs. Stepped in equal parts magical realism and beguiling mystery, The Last of the Moon Girls is a captivating story that will leave you under its luminous spell long after you turn the last page.”- Eldonna Edwards, award winning author of This I Know and Clover Blue
Tis the week of magical realism for me. I love when I inadvertently schedule all of my TBR books around a theme, I feel like it really just shows where my bookish interests lie (or what mood I’m in). But anyways, this book was just so gorgeously written. I feel like anything that dives into magical realism is guaranteed to be a lyrical and beautiful book.
This book is honestly just so perfect in so many ways. I mean if there’s one thing that makes a book that features magical realism more perfect is having is set in New England. I don’t know why, but it’s just one of those places that automatically makes me feel like home whenever I start reading about it (even though I’ve never been haha).
This book is just one of those enjoyable stories that will make you feel relaxed and pleasant. That probably sounds bizarre, but it’s like the perfect fall day wrapped in the pages of a book. The story reminds me of the likes of Alice Hoffman where the magic is there, but so is the heart. It was all around just such a fantastic read.
