"Slow Moon Rising," by Eva Marie Everson, is the latest Cedar Key novel and ties all three books in the series together. The four Claybourne sisters' stories are told as well as their step-mother's story and their father and mother's as well. Anise, Kimberly, Jamie-Leigh, Ami and Heather have all struggled with things in their lives and have all relied on each other and their faith in order to get through the tough times. Cedar Key has been home to this family during the summer and holidays and has brought pain and healing to these women as the girls are faced with memories of their mother, yet also find a sense of peace while being at the home.
This is a well-written book and the story had me crying, smiling and immersed in the characters' lives. I love how this book was written as it changed perspectives throughout the story, yet each woman's story was still connected. I have read the other two books in this series and this book just really filled in all of the missing pieces of those two books as well as filling in some gaps and bringing everything to a nice conclusion for this family in the end. This is a really touching story and will leave you wishing for a home in Cedar Key to escape to in times of need for rest, relaxation and healing.
