Review: The Girl Who Chased The Moon by: Sarah Addison Allen

The Girl Who Chased the MoonThe Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Emily Benedict is sent to live with her grandfather, Vance Shelby (the Giant) after the death of her mother. Her mother never talking about the town that she grew up in, Mullaby,NC , her family, or the people there ever certainly didn't prepared Emily for what the town had not forgotten about her mother. The mystical changing wallpaper in her bedroom, the Mullaby lights, and the Coffeys - especially Win are all mysterys Emily is trying to unlock.

Julia Winterson lives next door to Vance and has been helping fill in some of the blanks for Emily, but being back in town herself for over a year and still bearing a secret has her hiding from Sawyer Alexander, a one time love.

With love and a dash of something "wondrous" when going back we don't have to repeat what has been done before, but forgiveness and redemption can lead to new path.
