Page Turners’ October Selection

24 Sep

My church book club is planing a trip to St. Simons Island following our September discussion of Eugenia Price’s novel, Lighthouse. Because we will be in St. Simons we are reading book 2 in the St. Simons Trilogy, New Moon Rising, in October. Have you read this book? We would love to hear your thoughts on it.


13357587A rich and riveting tale of love, hardship, and the journey for happiness in the war-torn South.

In New Moon Rising, Eugenia Price gives us a story of faith and courage that follows the struggle of James Gould’s son Horace to find his own place in life. Reaching manhood in the tumultuous years before the Civil War, Horace returns to St. Simons and finds himself disheartened by the intolerance on his beloved island. However, he wins the heart of lovely neighbor Deborah Abbott, who adores her “Mr. Gould” and becomes his wife, despite the difference in their years. She is not concerned with his rumored past, but she is saddened by his lack of faith. Filled with romance, hardship, and adventure, this sequel to Lighthouse vividly portrays the antebellum South while revealing an independent man’s search for happiness.

    I love this trilogy! I recently reread Lighthouse, and plan to reread the other. Your trip sounds wonderful. I have been to Savannah, but failed to find St. Simons Island. Visiting Savannah and Charleston enhanced my reading greatly. Miss Price’s books are tops in my book!

      I have lived in Georgia for 28 years and have never been to St. Simons! I have visited other of the sea islands though. Looking forward to visiting the places we have read about.
