A tale of precious things more rare than a blue moon…
The year is 1885 and unwed Vanessa Gulet must surrender her newborn son to her married twin sister, Valerie, to raise. A seed of bitterness grows in Vanessa. When the opportunity arises for her to have what she’s always wanted, Vanessa takes it despite the consequences to her family, getting more than she bargained for.
Meanwhile, Valerie, overcome with loss and grief, faces a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. Will she and her husband, Felix, forge through their trials together, or will these upsets cause them to drift apart?
Will Vanessa and Valerie remain at odds, or will they allow the power of forgiveness to heal their strained relationship?
Love seems to bloom in the most unlikely of places in Webaashi Bay for an old friend of Jenay’s and a woman who owns the local dress shop. A parallel tale of love, forgiveness, and reuniting lost things is spun by a local author adding another dimension to the tale of the Gulet twins and their saga.
Fans of historical fiction, Christian historical fiction, clean romance, and literary fiction will enjoy this dramatic read!

My Thoughts . . .
Blue Moon is a wonderful, beautifully written story. Jenny Knipfer does an awesome job drawing the reader into 1885 to be a part of Vanessa Gulet's world. Initially, the dual timelines (which soon merge) were a bit distracting for me but I quickly became too involved with the characters to care! These visits to the past certainly helped me get to know the characters better and gave greater depth to the story.
I highly recommend Blue Moon!
