Born Under a Lucky Moon

About the Book

A wonderfully polished debut novel of women's fiction that is smart, touching, and utterly engaging. 'This is just one story of my family. It starts with a long planned wedding on a Saturday, followed by a surprise wedding on Sunday. It ends with a murder and a sex scandal. Like every relationship in every family, this story doesn't reside in the black and white of right and wrong. It resides in the gray area called love.' From the Great Lakes of Michigan to Los Angeles and back again, 'Born Under a Lucky Moon' is the tale of two very important (but distant) years in Jeannie Thompson's life. While most people think their families are eccentric, Jeannie has concrete evidence. Things just seem to happen to her family. Look at only one very eventful year in her embarrassing, crazy, colourful family's life: surprise marriages, a sprinkler system cursed by the gods, a renegade granny, and all the other reasons for Jeannie's current out-of-control, full-tilt existence. But an unexpected proposal from her long-time boyfriend means Jeannie may finally have to recognize her place among the people she loves most in the world - the same ones she ran away from in the first place.
