Lady in the Moon
by Connie Claire Szarke.
The third novel in the Callie series, following her award-winning Delicate Armor, and A Stone for Amer.
Callandra Mae Lindstrom approaches her middle years altered by an abusive marriage. During the road trip home from Illinois, where she and her father Will traveled in search of Uncle Amer's gravesite, Callie spends time coming to terms with her personal struggles, reflecting on the lives of others, and the ways in which these people survived or succumbed to their own painful experiences. These critical lessons help Callie get on in the world as she alternately stumbles and dances through this part of her life.
