Overview

Althea Ford lives alone with her invalid sister in a dilapidated Oregon farmhouse. Still paying for sins of the past, she needs help to keep the dwelling from collapsing around her. Help arrives with Jefferson Hicks, the former town sheriff who is now as rundown as her home. Neither of them is happy about the situation, and neither has a choice. Allie expects a solid day's work for a day's pay. What she doesn't anticipate is the reawakening of dreams long buried and desire she's never known before.

Jeff Hicks is at the bottom of a barrel, looking up. Fate visited him with a vengeance when a single incident turned his life upside down. Guilt and failure are his constant companions, but hope flares in him when he goes to work for Allie. As much imprisoned by the past as she is, he realizes that love might heal his numb heart and give him reason to live again.

But spiteful enemies are eager to keep them apart, and they must confront old demons if they are to survive.

Winner of several awards, including RT's K.I.S.S.Award.

    Sweet gentle love story

    This is the first Alexis Harringto novel I have read. I will definitely be searching for others. Though at times I grew a little weary of Althea's sacrificing herself for Olivia, it made the end that much sweeter. She painted very real characters in Jeff and Althea--and made you feel the pain that had held them both captives for so long. A must for anyone wanting to read a sweet gentle love story!

    Enjoyable western romance relationship drama

    In 1880 Decker Prairie, Oregon, Althea Ford enters town, a place she hates visiting because she realizes that the townsfolk look at and her sibling as though they were crazy. She detests coming to the town because everyone not so subtly keeps reminding her that her mama committed suicide and her beloved sister Olivia suffers from spells. However, it is only in town that she will find someone to help work her run down farm. Former Sheriff Jefferson Hicks drowns his sorrows in a whisky bottle to bury the guilt eating at his gut caused by a fatal shooting. He hits a new low when a local farmer catches him stealing eggs and presses charges. Instead of locking up Jefferson, Sheriff Will Mason assigns his old friend to work for four months on the Ford spread. <P>As Will and Allie work closely together on the farm, they find salvation and fall in love. However, the frail Olivia, encouraged by their now deceased father, grew up totally dependent on her older sister. She cannot abide the developing relationship between her ¿guardian¿ and the former law enforcement official. Olivia does everything in her power to break the lovebirds apart. A murder occurring on the Ford property casts doubts on the innocence of Will and Allie and threatens to destroy their blossoming affair. <P>Alexis Harrington is quickly earning a reputation for her relationship dramas that focus on love¿s ability to heal the most scarred souls. Her latest novel, ALLIE¿S MOON is a deeply moving western romance with an exciting story line that is clearly character-driven. The lead protagonists are scarred from life¿s lessons until they find one another and teach each other how to heal. Olivia is an interesting but complex secondary player who challenges those around her. Ms. Harrington has spun another triumphant book that demonstrates that true love can be the salvation of lives¿ walking wounded. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Three stars

    I couldn't see how she could be so blind with her sister. She basically made herself into a servant putting up with her selfish sister and that really annoyed me enough that it ruined part of the story. Overall it was a good story with the writing but because of the ignorance and babying of her sister, i ended up skipping several pages.

    Allie's Moon

    This was a truly wonderful book of the renewing properties of love. Even for a jaded soul like mine it made me want to fall in love. I really enjoyed how Alexis Harrington developed her characters and slowly unpeeled the layers to their tortured souls. The stories of Jeff and Althea were so heart wrenching that I wanted a happy ending for them. Olivia's character was so demented and sick that I actually wound up feeling sorry for her. Overall it was a truly terrific book that touched my soul. It is a must read.

    Ok novel

    It was an ok story. Not the best by this author though. The character of Olivia was fascinating but not developed enough. The rest was predictable.
