Mature Coming of Age
Family Drama



Therese Walsh's poignant and mesmerizing novel is a moving tale of family, love, and the power of stories. After their mother's probable suicide, sisters Olivia and Jazz are figuring out how to move on with their lives. Jazz, logical and forward-thinking, decides to get a new job, but spirited, strong-willed Olivia, who can see sounds, taste words, and smell sights, is determined to travel to the remote setting of their mother's unfinished novel to say her final goodbyes and lay their mother's spirit to rest.

Though they see things very differently, Jazz is forced by her sense of duty to help Olivia reach her goal. Bitter and frustrated by the attention heaped on her sunny sister whose world is so unique, Jazz is even more upset when they run into trouble along the way and Olivia latches to a worldly train-hopper. Though Hobbs warns Olivia that he's a thief who shouldn't be trusted, he agrees to help with their journey. As they near their destination, the tension builds between the two sisters, each hiding something from the other, and they will finally be forced to face everything between them and decide what is really important.


"Both heartbreaking and hopeful, the Moon sisters’ journey is no quixotic quest, and readers will find themselves completely immersed in their transformative search. This magical, moving tale is not to be missed."
Booklist (STARRED REVIEW)
"Luminous...a book packed with invention and rich characterizations." -Publishers Weekly

I am a new follower here. I am interested in this book. the Mother daughters and sister relationships in my family were complicated. I love all my sisters, including the two my mother gave me with other husbands and the three my father gave me with his other wives. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

No real life sisters. But I do wish I could have had one (specially as I have got older)

My favorite sister (I have 6 of them!) would have to be my sister Donna! She's a corker! Love her to death and beyond! She has RA and is in advanced stages of it, but she has the most explosive, wild personality of anyone I've ever met! Such a good heart and lovely person!
