Lilies in the Moonlight


He’d lost his zest for life. She was just lost. Will they find the healing and love they long for?
After a roaring night on the town, fun-loving flapper Lilly Margolis, dazed and disoriented, twists her ankle and falls into the backyard of a wealthy family where the effects of the Great War—over for more than half a decade—are still endured. Inside the walls of the Burnside mansion, Cullen Burnside, a disillusioned and disfigured veteran, and his widowed mother, Betty Ruth, who daily slips a little further into dementia, lead a lonely existence … until Lilly. Whimsical, lighthearted, and beautiful, she rejuvenates their sad, disconnected lives and blossoms in the light of their attention.


But Lilly, like Cullen, is hiding from a painful past. And when Cullen insists on returning her to her faraway home, their budding attraction seems destined to die on the vine. The resulting road trip becomes a journey of self-discovery—but what will Cullen and Lilly find at journey’s end? 


My Thoughts:

This is a really cute book. I love the idea of the "flapper"in this story. A young woman who has rebelled against her teachings finds love and compassion from an elderly lady. While spending time with Betty Ruth, Lilly finds what it means to really have a love for God and knows what it is to have someone truly love her. Life was not always  easy for Lilly. She brings with her a ray of sunshine even though it may not be proper in the society that the Burnside family is in.

The whole story in general shares the love, compassion, and forgiving of our Heavenly Father while telling the story of Lilly and Cullen.  This is definitely a good book to add to a reading list.
