    SECOND STAR TO THE RIGHT by MARY ALICE MONROE Mary Alice Monroe

    SECOND STAR TO THE RIGHT by MARY ALICE MONROE

    Mary Alice Monroe manages to blur the lines between reality and fantasy in this delightful tale . The Author shared with her Readers what was happening in her life while she was writing this book, she was taking care of her dying Mom so SECOND STAR TO THE RIGHT holds a special place in her heart and in turn with us, the reader.

    Faye, a single Mom escaping an abusive relationship journeys to London to give herself and her children a fresh  start. Raising her children, Maddie and Tom not to believe in Fairy Tales, she is taken aback when they fall for the Charming Wendy that lives upstairs in the Flat they rented. Wendy fills the children's heads with wonderful stories of Peter Pan and trips to Neverland. She opens up their world to magic and fantasy because she still believes in them herself! In fact she claims to be Peter Pan’s Wendy!!
     Also living in Flat number 14 is Jack, a brilliant Professor looking for answers to his own past. He soon finds he has ties to Wendy from long ago. 
    Jack is also drawn to Faye and her children realizing no matter how successful he is , the biggest part of life that he is missing out on is the love and stability of a family.  
     
    SECOND STAR TO THE RIGHT is a wonderful story about healing and finding the love and magic in the everyday issues we face and to never stop believing in magic no matter how old we get.

    I have never read the book Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie although I am familiar with the story. I was anxious to read Mary Alice Monroe's tale of what became of Peter Pan's Wendy. Mary Alice Monroe weaves the story filled with magic with the reality of grown up life. right from the start of the book I was living in Number 14 from the wonderful descriptions. Also, there is nothing that is predictable about the story, you have to stay with it to know what happens. There was truly magic in the house known as No. 14 in London. Wendy showed Faye, Maddie, Tom and Jack that all you had to do was believe and you would have nothing to fear.

    Mary Alice Monroe has done it again.  She dusted off an old Fairy Tale and placed it into the lives of real people who are dealing with problems in their lives.  Hope, joy and love come through in each page.  I had a smile throughout my reading .  Thanks for letting me know that time cannot dim a zest for life and love.

    I BELIEVE!  A magical journey into the lives of a modern family.

    I BELIEVE!  A magical journey into the lives of a modern family. Not one of blood or marriage but a family of the heart.  Mary Alice Monroe has captured the fantasy and magic of childhood and brought it right back into the readers own heart. She has made a believer out of me.  A wonderful way to start the Christmas Holiday Season

    Very Endearing

    Wonderful story. Very heart warming. Pulls you in right from the very beginning. I am a hugh fan of Mary Alice Monroe and I truly love Peter Pan so it brought together two of my favorites. It really does blur the lines between fantasy and reality. This book truly kept me up at night reading late.
