– Pat Conroy
In Man in the Blue Moon, Ella Wallace’s husband has left her and her three sons saddled with debt and desperately working to keep the mystical Florida land that has been in her family for generations from the hands of an unscrupulous banker. When a mysterious man arrives at Ella’s door in an unconventional way and convinces her he can help, the battle for her land intensifies. The man’s troubled past soon comes to haunt Ella’s future. Hypocrisy and murder shake the coastal town of Apalachicola as Morris weaves an unforgettable drama of love and loyalty, betrayal and redemption – based on an unbelievable, yet true story from his grandfather.
