In her "New York Times" bestselling novel "Too Deep for Tears," Kathryn Lynn Davis launched an acclaimed saga brimming with evocative, deeply emotional portrayals. Now, this beloved storyteller returns to a magnificent world of laughter and tears, hope and desire, in an exquisite new novel. Eva Crawford faces the most important decision of her life -- whether to accept a marriage proposal from the only man she has ever loved -- and finds herself in turmoil over her past, and haunted by unsettling dreams. The key to her peace of mind lies where it always has: Glen Affric, the peaceful Scottish Highland sanctuary that has linked the Rose women -- mothers, daughters, and sisters for generations. For Eva, their stories are her legacy of strength, her promise of a hopeful future. For Ena Rose, the daughter of Ailsa Rose, growing up in Glen Affric has been idyllic. Adored by all, Ena is a free spirit who prefers the company of animals to people. She saves lost woodland creatures and heals the injured with herbs, roots, and her instincts. But young womanhood looms; and as she tries desperately, to dodge the challenges before her, Ena faces tormenting questions of the heart -- and a love that can never be. For the wild child who refuses to grow up, the path to adulthood will be fraught with heartache and loss -- but will lead one day to redemption and happiness. Then there are the women whose destinies have unfolded over decades and eras, and whose lives touch others in unseen ways: Mairi Rose, warm and wise, who binds the family together...Ailsa, who found boundless happiness in her daughter Ena, the last living symbol of Ian Fraser's heroism...Wan Lian, who is driven bysoul-consuming sorrow and anger at the death of her loved ones in the turbulent politics of the Chinese imperial court...Genevra Townsend, who finds amongst the exotic dangers of the British Raj in India an inner serenity that will allow her to return at last to Glen Affric.... Their hopes and sorrows, their desires and fears arc at the heart of this magnificent tale. Richly textured with joy and sadness, life-affirming in its depiction of the generations of the Rose women, Somewhere Lies the Moon is an astounding triumph for Kathryn Lynn Davis. Its timeless wisdom and stirring emotion will make these unforgettable heroines live on long after the final page is turned.
