“Light of the Moon” by Luanne Rice

“Light of the Moon” by Luanne Rice
2008, Bantam Books
ISBN: 978-0-553-80511-6

“Light of the Moon” by Luanne Rice is a regular sized book. I would normally take 3 or 4 days to read it. Not this one. I started it yesterday and finished it this morning it was that good.

Susannah Connolly is an anthropologist. Her work is pretty much all that occupies her. Her mother just died. She’s grieving and life just isn’t so happy now. She’s going to keep a promise that she made to her mother to visit the French Camargue where there are famous white horses.

She’s been in love with horses since she was a little girl and the trip appeals immediately to her. There she is rescued by a man when she stumbles into a herd of bulls. His daughter, Sari, is a wounded little girl whose mother deserted the family when she was 8 years old. Now, she is 13 and still carries the scars both emotional and physical from the night her mother left.

Susannah falls in love with both of them and during the course of this story miracles shine forth. Luanne is a wonderful writer and I would recommend this book for anybody up for a terrific love story.
