After losing her teaching position at the local university, Mariah Moon will do anything to keep her gifted twelve-year-old daughter, Lindsay, in a prestigious private school -- which means moving in with her mother and grandmother in an apartment above The Owl & Moon Café. When her mother, Allegra, is diagnosed with leukemia, Mariah rises to the challenge of running the café: mastering her mother's famous fudge and chatting up customers -- including a man who might just reawaken her heart. Meanwhile, Lindsay's controversial entry in a major national science contest creates a minor maelstrom in the cosseted Monterey Bay community. And Allegra, with one last great love affair in her, will revisit a man she loved so many years ago, and disclose the biggest secret of the Moon family: the identity of Mariah's father. Will the Moon women recognize this as the moment to do away with their family history of dubiously fathered children, and learn to forgive others and themselves in order to move forward? In her poignant new novel, bestselling author Jo-Ann Mapson explores the complexities of love and family with the keen eye and stylistic grace that have made her books perennial favorites.… (mer)

I really loved this book. It was full of colorful characters that I fell in love with! The story follows four generations of women with all their faults and different ideas about a lot of things. Sprinkle in a few men and add leukemia to one of the women and see how they deal with what life has given them. Will their family unit survive or crumble? ( )

terrible writing, all around not good ( )

What made this book better than average was the refreshingly honest voice of Lindsay, the daughter of the Moon clan. Love for her is what finally brings the rest of the women together. ( )

This is a great tale of four generations of women coping with life as best they can. I loved them all and recommend this book highly. ( )

An ok read. I thought it was going to be different somehow and I think that's why I was a bit dissapointed. It was full of great characters and an unique story about 3 generations of women. ( )
