NCLA Review -Life is full of choices. What one does with those choices is the theme of Lilies in Moonlight. Lily chose to live life her way and left home. Door-to-door cosmetic sales introduced Lily to Betty Ruth Burnside, a lonely wealthy widow with selective senility. Betty Ruth, delighted with the beautiful young flapper, bought everything in Lily’s case. Betty Ruth’s son Cullen chose miserable responsibility. A scarred disfigured veteran, he lost his one great love, baseball. Being forced into his father’s financial empire bred unforgiving anger. Cullen meets a groggy and confused Lily after she left a party, twisted her ankle and fell into the family’s backyard. Betty Ruth insists Lily stay but Cullen worries how that kind of girl might harm his mother. In this is beautiful story of choices and results, Lily learns of God’s love and mercy, and Cullen must accept or reject the healing Betty Ruth envisions for him. Rating: 4 —CRP ( )

For the most part, this was an ejoyable book. If you like Christian romance, then you'll love this. I've never read a story from this time period, and it was quite fun to read about how women were changing and behaving at that time.

The only thing I didn't really like is the female main character's forwardness towards the male character. I've never liked forward women, but she's cute and naive, so she kind of gets away of it. Still, it's not a personality trait I like, so I had a bit of a hard time liking her at first. ( )

It's the roaring twenties and Lilly Margolis literally stumbles into what could be true love. With her charm, wit, and love of life she changes the lives of two people that had thought their happiness at an end.

This story was delightful and intriguing, a beautiful tale of love and how one person could change your life forever.

Lilly Margolis is a rebellious flapper girl who sell makeup door to door for a living. Out on the town one night she had an accident and ended up in the backyard of Betty Ruth and her son Cullen Burnside.. Betty Ruth who is battling dementia fell in love with Lilly but Cullen was more reserved. He was scarred from the war and was also dealing with other issues of the past. This is a fun story and the era was fun to read about. It also dealt with more serious issues like redemption so it was balanced. ( )
