WOW! I have read the author’s “The Key to Everything,” but, Under the Bayou Moon did not disappoint and it is one of my favorite books. The author is a master storyteller and has a gift of bringing sights, tastes and smells, to life. Her story left me hungry for shrimp po’boys and beignets from Café Du Monde.
A wonderful story of love, family, hardship, belonging and finding oneself tossed in with Cajun culture, mysteries of a white alligator that will leave the reader with lots to think about.
Community, faith, and family is the focus of Bernadette, Louisiana. When tragedy hits the community, everyone comes together to help each other. God’s grace is evident through the people. I loved the story and will be reading the book again.
