Bryn Seymour was nine years old when her mother died under mysterious circumstances on the same day Apollo 11 made its historic lunar landing. Forty years later—divorced, working as an obituary writer, and duly cynical—she meets Howard, a conspiracy theorist who knew her mom and believes a small Texas town may hold clues to what really fueled her demise. Seeking closure, Bryn goes along for this men-in-black ride. But upon meeting Howard’s son Sam, an outspoken Christian, she can’t decide whose beliefs are more pie-in-the-sky.

The gravity of life has pulled Bryn down for decades. But a perfect love could be her first step to soaring. It only happens once in a blue moon.

Alice_Wonder's thoughts on "Once in a Blue Moon: A Novel"
updated on:4/29/2010

The three main characters in this book are very human in that they are both flawed and strong. Bryn, Howard, and Sam are all searching for truth. Bryn wants to know the truth about her Mother's death and the identity of her father. Howard wants to know the truth about the moon landing and, more importantly, wants the world to know the truth. Sam feels that the Bible and Christianity has given him the truth. However, he seems to be seeking his true destiny.

I was touched by the affection and patience shown by Sam toward his Father who is a distant and distracted man. As always I enjoy an unexpected romance between two seemly very different people. The Christian theme in the book was not forced or simplistic. The book is gently humerous and shows insight into human nature.
