Susannah Connolly lost her mother six months ago, but each day still seems as real as if it happened yesterday. As a cultural anthropologist, her specialty is cave paintings. Ian had been almost a perfect partner until their relationship left them distance.
Grey Dempsey left America and went to France where he fell in love with a lovely lady. He had no idea his life would become one of devastation. He is thrilled to have the best horses in the region but wishes he could remove the pain from his young daughter.
Susannah needs to get away after her mother’s death and the romance with her partner that did not take flight. Thanks to her mother, Susannah has lovely stories of Camargue, a place she goes to visit. Grey has been unhappy for a long time and Susannah fills that void in his empty heart. As much as he would love to spend more time with her, he must concentrate on training his horses, as well as care for his daughter who is trying to get over the hurt of her mother leaving them. Susannah and Grey never wish to be alone again. Can this trip prove fruitful not only for Susannah but Grey as they try to fill the empty void in their life?
Light of the Moon is a very moving story with a host of characters that blend well as they tell a magnificent tale of love, romance, forgiving and learning to find the right love in one’s life. I love the way Luanne Rice depicts the lovely area in which Susannah visits. It made me feel as if I was right along on the trip. Everything is lush and breathtaking, leaving me in awe. I love the way she makes her characters in-depth where one can actually feel their pain and sorrow, joy and happiness. The intrigue that surrounds Grey and Susannah is spun beautifully, keeping this reader engaged until the end.
