Lilies in Moonlight by Allison Pittman

About the Book:

He’d lost his zest for life. She was just lost. Will they find the healing and love they long for?

After a roaring night on the town, fun-loving flapper Lilly Margolis, dazed and disoriented, twists her ankle and falls into the backyard of a wealthy family where the effects of the Great War—over for more than half a decade—are still endured. Inside the walls of the Burnside mansion, Cullen Burnside, a disillusioned and disfigured veteran, and his widowed mother, Betty Ruth, who daily slips a little further into dementia, lead a lonely existence … until Lilly. Whimsical, lighthearted, and beautiful, she rejuvenates their sad, disconnected lives and blossoms in the light of their attention.

But Lilly, like Cullen, is hiding from a painful past. And when Cullen insists on returning her to her faraway home, their budding attraction seems destined to die on the vine. The resulting road trip becomes a journey of self-discovery—but what will Cullen and Lilly find at journey’s end?

My Review:

I have come to the determinations that I love books set in the 1920's which tends to be a time period that is not written is as much. I also love anything by Allison Pittman, this is my 6th book I have read from her and have loved them all. She is a very talented writer that manages to pull of different time periods and settings very well.

Lilies in Moonlight is a great book that pulled me in from page one and I had a hard time putting it down. The story flowed very well and I loved the character of Lilly, she is fun and lively but not perfect and has had her issues to deal with. She brings joy to the Burnside family and sparks healing and so much more. This book is an adventure with unexpected turns and surprises along the way.  I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves historical fiction, 1920's or just a great book. Final rating 4.8 out of 5 stars.

* I received this book from Blogging for books for the purpose of this review, an honest opinion was all that was expected.


  1. I loved Lilies in Moonlight as well. It's the only book I've read by Allison so far but I want to find her other books.

    1. You will have to read her other books, I loved her crossroads of grace.

  2. I read this one several months back and enjoyed it. I actually think it's the first book I've ever read set in the 1920's, so it was definitely unique for me... Very interesting though, and it taught me what the term "flapper" means! ;) I guess I didn't realize Allison has other books published, I should probably check them out.
