Today I’m reviewing Dandelion Moon, the second book in the Hallowed Halls Series by Hannah Alexander.
Here is a brief synopsis from Goodreads:
On Christmas Eve, a woman stumbles through a cemetery, not knowing who or where she is…
Myra sat beside Weston, staring up at the December sky. “I remember sitting in this place watching the moon disappear a little more each night, like the head of a dandelion blowing in the wind. That was how I felt about my life.”
“But you know what happens when those dandelion seeds spread,” Weston said. “The wind carries them away to be planted and thrive elsewhere. You may feel as if you’re losing yourself, but your love is planting hope for new life in others.”
On Christmas Eve, Weston Cline frantically searches for the woman he loves, psychiatrist Myra Maxwell. She fled her clinic in the middle of the day, and he’s heard nothing from her since.
When he can’t find her in the city, he decides to search in her hometown, where he’s made enemies in the past and must tread lightly.
Will Weston be able to find Myra and help her recover her memories, or will his past sins prevent him from reaching her?
The husband and wife writing team that we know as Hannah Alexander has created some amazing – and ever-changing – characters.
In Hallowed Halls, the first book of the series, we met the main characters of the series — Joy, Myra, Laine, Tressa, Molly, Zack and Weston. In Dandelion Moon, everyone is back, and I was eager to see what’s happening between Joy and Zack, Joy and Weston, Joy and Molly, and what new relationships might occur.
Authentic characters really matter – and Hannah Alexander does a remarkable job creating realistic characters that the reader can – and does – relate to in the books.
Yes! I was more than a little surprised to read that Weston was emotionally – and romantically – involved with Myra, his therapist… and Joy’s best friend!
I was even more surprised when Zack and Weston come to depend on one another for advice and support concerning Myra, Joy and Molly, along with Sarah, one of Myra’s patients.
But my best feeling… how quickly I became involved in book one… and again in book two; it feels great to enjoy the interesting characters and the anything-but-dull story with such depth that I can’t wait to read the next one in the series!
And if you’re looking for a great Christmas read… pick up a copy of Dandelion Moon, a sweet inspirational novel just in time for Christmas!
