“Lillies in the Moonlight”, by Allison Pittman is a fictional novel that takes place during the flapper’s roaring 20’s era. Lilly Margolis is a young flapper trying to make it on her own as a sales girl selling beauty products. After stumbling across a woman named Betty Ruth, who is a wealthy widow that has dementia, Lilly finds the meaning of true motherly love. Once attending a party Lilly falls into Betty Ruth’s backyard and is discovered by her son, Cullen Burnside, who has had a difficult time after coming back from war having survived mustard gas. Lilly begins living with the family and her and Cullen begin their deep healing process from their past.
This book was a fun read. I liked how all of the characters had their quirks about them but still parts of them were relatable. I would recommend this book to someone that likes love stories and enjoy books about people who overcome obstacles. I received a free copy of this book for an honest review through Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers.
