Oh friends, I found this to be such a lovely read. Life lessons through each chapter are to be learned for the main character, Julia Bennett. Life as she knew it all changed and that is a frightening thing. Through Julia we see the picture of what happens when we finally give it all to Jesus and let Him do the leading.

Picture this. A lovely, close knit family and one day it seems everything changes and that family you felt so secure in is now making you feel as though you just want to run. Julia wants to escape it all and she does. She leaves her family behind, but trial comes and Julia is facing the issue of what to do. She can't run any longer. With grace and tender mercy she returns and life as she knew it changes forever.

So, you could say this book is about change and how we react to it. Change will always come. It's evident in life, but it's what we do with that change that matters. Through Julia we see that with Christ all things are possible. Healing, letting go, forgiveness and grace.

Marney shows us humility. She is in need of grace and forgiveness. Life is changing for her forever. There is nothing she can do about the doctor's report, but beyond that, what happens lies within her. Marney had made mistakes in the past, but now her future is all but changing abruptly and she finds that she cannot do it on her own. She lays it all down and turns to Julia.

Margaret is the sister with anger. She has a bitterness inside that is eating her alive. Little sister is not happy Julia is returning home. Yes, there is a character we can all relate too on one level or another. They are so real and raw. Within this gripping read are three precious children, Heath, Etta and Charlie.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a fairly formulaic story about a dysfunctional family that was severely and negatively impacted by an affair and divorce. 20 years later, people in the family are in a position to re-connect and learn to love each other. The characters were believable - sort of - and the story should have been engaging, but it wasn't. It was a wannabee good book - I could see it happening if the writing had been better. Instead, the characters were presented instead of developed and the story just wasn't that engaging.

Format: Paperback
As I started this book, I have to admit that I was not sure if I would like it. There are some very serious hurts that are being dealt with in this book. But as I read on, I discovered that I did not want to put this book down. The author did a great job of telling this story through the different perspectives of the characters in this book. The book delves into infidelity, desertion, desire for love and family, injustice, anger and hurt. We view much of the book through Julia's eyes, the oldest sister in a family that was destroyed by a father's infidelity and desertion. We also view events through her younger sister, Meg's, eyes. There is a lot of anger there. We see Julia's mom, Mary Ellen's, side of the story and view how her life has been for the past twenty years. We view part of the story from Jed's viewpoint. Jed is a neighbor and was Julia's first kiss. Finally, we get a child's perspective through Etta, who is one of the children from Julia's father's second marriage. This book is so interesting and I felt very emotional reading it. I really enjoyed the book, however, I felt it ended a little abruptly. I would have liked another chapter or two, or maybe an epilogue to really feel that the conclusion of the book lived up to the rest of the story. I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Moon Over Edisto touched me deeply. Julia, the main character, feels like a friend. I sympathized with her and urged her through the tough times. I took my time delving into the intricacies of her life, and ultimately encapsulated myself in her world. I wish the book didn't end. I don't want to say goodbye to her (or the other characters) and I yearn for the story to continue.

Chapters are told from different points of view and give a well-rounded view. I especially enjoyed little Etta's chapters--such insight and sweetness.

I recommend this book. Beth Webb Hart is an easy-listening type of storyteller, and Edisto feels like home. The book is nicely paced with no lagging parts. I hope the author plans to write a sequel. ;)

Format: Paperback
The past has come knocking on Julia's door. Can she summon the courage to answer betrayal with love?

Julia's best friend, Marney, broke up her parents' marriage years ago. Now Marney shows up at her Manhattan apartment, asking the impossible--come home to Edisto Island to care for the half-sisters and half-brother she has never known. Marney, recently widowed, has lung cancer. There's no other family to care for the children while she's in the hospital following surgery.

Julia loathes Marney. But if she doesn't step in, her own mother--who has never gotten over the divorce--will be called upon to take care of the children. So she heads to South Carolina to keep the peace.

On Edisto, she begins to reconnect with the place and the people and she's been running from her whole adult life. There's the local doctor who once stole a kiss from her on that very beach, and the siblings she's never known--especially the sister with selective mutism named Etta who's the keeper of nearly every family secret . . . including the very one that just might bind-up Julia's long-since shattered heart.

Moon Over Edisto by Beth Webb Hart was a sweet and touching novel that clearly displayed the connection of family and the importance of forgiveness. The plot line was interesting, moved at a steady and easy to follow pace, and the characters were realistic and unique. The narration of the plot switched between Julia, her mother, her sister Margaret, Julia's old sweetheart, and Etta. I found the storyline to be a good mix of suspense, romance, sadness, and humor.

The characters of this novel were also well written and developed well. Julia is a confused and slightly bitter woman who has suffered great betrayal by those who are the closest to her.
