Summary

In the heart of the Sonoma Valley, on the edge of a sun-drenched meadow, lies the idyllic community of Greengage - where the residents wear simple clothes and lead quiet lives and whose manners could almost seem to be of another time.

Into this world stumbles single mother Lux Lysander, trying to lose herself in the peaceful beauty of the Californian countryside while her young son visits his grandparents. It's a world far away from the unpaid bills piling up and the overwhelming sense of struggle to make ends meet.

Critic reviews

"Lovingly handcrafted, delectable and transcendent." (San Francisco Chronicle)
"Beautifully written...[Valley of the Moon is] a wonderful story about belonging love and the aching certainty that there's something more out there.... Sure to appeal to fans of Time and Again or The Time Traveler's Wife." (Shelf Awareness)
"Magical cinematic...Valley of the Moon is breathlessly romantic." (Sarah Addison Allen)

Enchanting

A delightful read which had me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next chapter. I was fully engaged in the lives of the characters and love the 'time travel' elements. I will return to this book again and again as I do with other audible favourites.
