Description

2020 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist in Paranormal 2020 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist in Chick Lit 2020 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist in First Novel (Over 90k Words) "Early's prose is tight and lyrical, confidently capturing her characters and their emotional landscapes . . . The enchanting portraits of Nevis--and of . . . Scotland--help make this an unexpectedly memorable beach read." --Kirkus Reviews "The Moon Always Rising takes your imagination on a trip to lush Caribbean Nevis and the Scottish Highlands in an engrossing story about how love and forgiveness help broken people mend. I especially loved the fabulous ghost (jumbie)--such a unique and intriguing character!" --Martha Hall Kelly, author of international bestseller Lilac Girls and its prequel Lost Roses "Alice Early gifts us with a smorgasbord of never-dull ex-patriots on the sunny, vibrant island of Nevis. There's a ghost, witty and concupiscent in his afterlife; a charter sailor who is trying to forget; and a Jamaican Rastafarian with a surprising secret up his sleeve. Best of all, there's Ms. Early's heroine, the comely and fractious Scot. Eleanor Gordon. Bad luck, betrayal, and numbing tragedy have pursued 'Els' to Nevis, where, maybe, she can dare to open her heart and let the world back in. A rich and intelligent novel written with grace and style." --John T. Hough, Jr., author of The Fiction Writer's Guide to Dialogue and the award-winning novel Seen the Glory "Early is a consummate writer who so stunningly draws us into the very texture of her story that we can feel the humid tropical air and interior lives of her characters . . . We are fortunate that [her] rich tapestry of both characters and narrative creates a much-needed refuge during these challenging times." --Martha's Vineyard Times "Early does a spectacular job of balancing magical realism while keeping the story from spinning into ludicrous territory . . . She flawlessly captures life in the Caribbean region . . . Early's narration is always well-paced and vivid, the characters all coming to life convincingly -- right down to the snarky jumbie . . . Readers will come to The Moon Always Rising for its pleasant narrative, for its realistic characters, for the intertwined stories of Els and her jumbie, Jack, but they will stay for the vivid descriptions of Nevis . . . The closest you will get to experience the island without actually stepping foot in it." --Paperback Paris
