Overview

“Some said Mount Hope was founded on love, and some said it was founded on war. . . . The Keatings said Mount Hope was founded on fish, plain and simple.”

So begins New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice’s mesmerizing novel Blue Moon. For generations the Keating family has trawled the waters and served the catch at Lobsterville, the most popular waterfront restaurant in town. But now the forces of nature, human and otherwise, threaten to disrupt their lives—and the three Keating sisters are fighting to keep it together.

Then the unthinkable happens—the tragedy dreaded by every fisherman and fisherman’s wife. And when it strikes, it threatens the entire Keating clan with a crisis that will test—and perhaps renew—their deepest passions and loyalties.

Praise

Praise for Luanne Rice’s THE LEMON ORCHARD

“Entrancing.”
People (***)

“Rice here takes her signature themes of family and loss into the difficult and enigmatic landscape of illegal immigration to powerful effect . . . . Lovely and compelling, with quiet yet brave social commentary that enhances the book’s impact.”
Kirkus

“Trust Rice (Little Night, 2012), known for fiction that explores the power of family, to find the humanity in illegal immigration, a topic too often relegated to rhetoric and statistics. . . . An unexpected plot turn will leave readers begging for a sequel.”
Booklist

“Rice’s fans will appreciate the evocative setting and unconventional romance, as well as the harrowing . . . depictions of border crossing and the fascinating parallels drawn between Julia’s research interests (she studies the Irish who arrived in America over a century ago) and modern-day Mexican immigrants.”
