From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Ann Walker comes an epic story about sacrifice, friendship, and the awe-inspiring power of love.
Maggie: Ten years ago, Cash Armstrong stole my heart. Then he promptly joined the army—dragging my best friend with him—and left me crying on the front porch in a red sequined prom dress. Now he's back. They're both back. Cash, the one who still has my heart. And Luc, the one who saved my life.
Cash: How do you know if you’re at the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end? That's what I've been trying to figure out since a traumatic brain injury made me "unfit to serve." I'm back in New Orleans, and picking up the shattered pieces of my past means I must confront where my life's journey began... and where it all might end.
Luc: Long ago, Maggie May was mine. Not mine in the way you might think. She was mine because she was my only friend. Then Cash came along and we became brothers by something stronger than blood. We became brothers by choice. When tragedy struck, I was forced to make a decision that changed all our lives. I thought, after ten years, it was safe to come back home. I was wrong...
Moonlight and Memories - book 3
Well written story....an emotional storyline and so descriptive! A pleasure to read. Definitely recommend this author - she is a good writer! I never get emotional....but I actually choked up while reading parts of this story. That’s how good it was.
This is a complicated, emotional & epic love story situated in New Orleans. Maggie & Luc have been best friends since childhood. Cash moves to New Orleans as a teenager, becomes best friends with Luc and through Luc, meets Maggie. Maggie & Cash Fall in love. Suddenly Cash joins the army & Luc follows him. Maggie is heartbroken as both boys have broken all contact with her and she doesn't understand why.
Volume #3 - The love triangle continues and oh the pain and angst. I was emotionally moved by the unselfish love and the pain these characters go through. Some parts are hard to read; almost gutting the reader at times. This is a beautiful love story, compassionate & honest and the friendship between theses 3 characters is beautiful & enviable.
These books are unlike anything Julie has ever written, but she has written a powerful & epic love story that demands to be read!
I received a complimentary ARC edition from Julie Ann Walker.
