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 the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. Will she and her husband, Felix, forge through their trials together or will life’s 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.
Blue Moon (By the Light of the Moon) was even better than the previous one in the series! The storyline was fascinating and the attention to historical detail made it so interesting. My only complaint is that nothing else got done because I couldn’t stop reading this book! Definitely one you will want to purchase, and I am looking forward to the release of the third book in this series. – D. Watts
There’s something about Knipfer’s writing that touches your heart. Maybe it’s the small town feel of her books, the endearing characters, or the plot that brings a message of truth and hope. And Knipfer wonderfully blends all these elements in her latest, Blue Moon. The second book in her By the Light of the Moon series, Knipfer continues to welcome her readers into Webaashi Bay, where we are welcomed back into the town and characters we fell in love with in Ruby Moon, the first book in this series. I am confident you will love this book just as much – if not more- than the first. For in this book, Knipfer has woven an entrancing tale we all need to hear. – Amazon Customer
Being a lover of historical fiction and having read Ruby Moon, I was eager to start reading Blue Moon by Jenny Knipfer. This book is a must read for anyone and especially those of us who like Lake Superior and it’s surrounding area as a setting for the book. The book is engaging, insightful, well researched, and informative. I enjoyed following along with Vanessa and Valerie as they encountered difficulties in their lives. I especially enjoy the quotes that begin each chapter and the bonus recipe at the end of the book. Thank you Jenny Knipfer. – laobeau
