In her latest enchanting novel, New York Times bestselling author Sarah Addison Allen invites you to a quirky little Southern town with more magic than a full Carolina moon. Here two very different women discover how to find their place in the world…no matter how out of place they feel.
If anyone were to ask me what “summer reading” means, I would tell them to buy this book.
When I think about summer reading I think about something that is light-hearted and poignant, something that will have me happily flipping the pages at the pool, a book that will tease that little smile to my lips so often that others walking by will stop to ask what I’m reading. I want to hear the music of the crickets chirping through the descriptions inside the pages and feel the humidity pressing down on me as well as the cool relief of the AC when the characters slip inside.
All of these things and more were given to me as I read The Girl Who Chased the Moon. I could rant on and on about how fantastic this book is, but instead I want to write a little note to the author.
Dear Ms. Allen,
Thank you for giving me a reason to love summer again. In just a short 24 hours while I devoured this story you wrote I forgot about the broken AC and stresses of upcoming school-days. I didn’t mind getting up to hang my clothes on the line because I could drift into Mullaby in my imagination imagining the gentle giant, the lights and the sweet, sweet romances taking place.
I’m not often as touched as I was by this book and over the last several months have become somewhat jaded when it comes to light-hearted mysteries and affairs of the heart… but this story broke through those walls I’d begun to build and made me remember just how much I love reading a good story.
Thank you and I cannot wait to read what else you have in store for us.
Your newest fan,
