Overview

“Some said Mount Hope was founded on love, and some said it was founded on war. . . . The Keatings said Mount Hope was founded on fish, plain and simple.”

So begins New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice’s mesmerizing novel Blue Moon. For generations the Keating family has trawled the waters and served the catch at Lobsterville, the most popular waterfront restaurant in town. But now the forces of nature, human and otherwise, threaten to disrupt their lives—and the three Keating sisters are fighting to keep it together.

Then the unthinkable happens—the tragedy dreaded by every fisherman and fisherman’s wife. And when it strikes, it threatens the entire Keating clan with a crisis that will test—and perhaps renew—their deepest passions and loyalties.

One of her best, a must read.

Not one of her best, but a good read. Too much going on and too many loose ends to be satisfied with the ending.

I think this is a lovely story of two young people very much in love. They may express their love for each other by in what some may call "graphic" ways but I'd hardly call it "pornographic". I've really enjoyed all of Luanne's novels for their romance, scenery, and the characters' relationships to each other- good and not. I've re-read many of them and lend them to others, even some narrow-minded ones. I'm sure even they will recall their days of young love with fond memories and wish they could revisit those times. I know I do.

Great story about family values and family love - but this is not a story to let your teenager read. Too descriptive of intimate scenes. I was dissapointed, other Fern Michael stories are much better.

I really enjoyed this book. The love of family, tragedy striking their youngest, learning to accept she could function as a hearing child, but the interself being overprotective and not letting her accept responsibility for her actions. All of this intertwine made a very touching story. I did not like the extra martial affair situation and it could have been left out and the book would have been just as good. The gun added suspense and glad it did not take someone's life. This story could have easily been someones true story. It was a good book. Not too long, not to short.

This book was not as good as Luanne Rice's other ones. The book was very boring in the beginning and hard to keep reading. The love scenes were a bit graphic but no worse than the normal love scene. I almost stopped reading it about half way through because it was so hard to keep track of the story. The last half or third was the best part of the book and the ending was great. My advice is to skip this one and read another Luanne Rice.

The love scenes in the book were a bit graphic, however that appears in alot of books so not a major concern. The plot of this book was extremely lacking and it was too bad it didnt get really interesting until the end.

Well this book took me a while to get through because it is a little slow, but I must say I made it through it and that is something from me. The last 3rd of the book was the best and the ending brought me to tears. I found wonderful things about this book.

I have always enjoyed Luanne Rice's novels--mainly because of their uplifting nature. I found this one almost pornographic. In fact, I did not finish the book--I threw it in my garbage! Her later novels are MUCH better!

Well, this isn't my favorite of Ms. Rice's, but it was still a pretty good read. It was a little slow at first. And I wish there would have been more character development for certain people, but this still was a good story. After the story started to get going, it was an interesting read. She makes it very easy for you to read her books & then look around & feel like you are THERE. At the beach, on a boat, in the woods, etc. I guess this was one of her earlier works, she was still coming into her style. Worth the time I think though.
