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-discoverybut what will Cullen and Lilly find at journeys end?
"Flappers and family. Baseball and cosmetics. War and wealth. Give Allison Pittman those threads, and you have the rich tapestry that is Lilies in Moonlight. Lilly Margolis is an off-the-charts heroine that will have you fumbling to turn the pages to keep up with her. But its the honesty in Lilly and the entire cast of characters that is Pittmans greatest gift to us in this compelling story."
Mona Hodgson, author of Two Brides Too Many and Too Rich for a Bride
"In Lilies in Moonlight, Allison Pittman offers a fine mix of sin, redemption, and history as an unflappable flapper takes a poignant ride through Prohibition-era Florida. From the homes of the wealthy to a backwoods tent revival, hard times and harder truths chase a wild girl and a warwounded man into the arms of a love that wont let them go. By turns both heartbreaking and flat-out fun, this story is a gem."
Meg Moseley, author of When Sparrows Fall
"Lilies in Moonlight transported me to a world radiant with the bold, jaunty spirit of the Jazz Age. I was completely absorbed in the story of Lilly, an unsinkable flapper who turns the pain of her past into a drive to live her life to the fullest. Allison Pittmans novel is vastly entertaining, romantic, and deeply spiritual: a sparkling, fun read that also brought me to tears of sympathy for the characters. Beautifully written, this is a rich story of overcoming, hope, and love that surprised me in a wonderful way with every turn of the pagetruly in a league of its own."
Rosslyn Elliott, author of Fairer than Morning
"Lilies in Moonlight is a tender story full of mercy and grace. When two scarred souls meet in God-orchestrated circumstances, Mrs. Betty Ruth Burnside makes it her mission to meld them together. Her son, Cullen, has no desire to fellowship with a flapper. Yet Lilly Margolis has such magnetism, and shes drawn to the Burnsides elegance and wealth. How could such an unlikely match work?"
Eileen Key, author of Forget-Me-Not

A delightful novel with well-written, whimsical characters.
Lilly is a flapper, who is not above using her charms to get what she wants. One night she falls into the backyard of Cullen Burnside, and his aging mother, a wealthy family still suffering the aftermath of the WWI. Lilly worms her way into the Burnsides' hearts, bringing hope and livlihood back into their home.
I love this book! The characters are so well-developed, and even though I didn't think that Lilly was the nicest person at first, she was a great character the whole way through. Mrs. Burnside was a lovely woman, so sweet and just an all-around wonderful person. And Cullen was a man who had endured so many things, yet he had inner strength and began to hope again.
This book was thoroughly enjoyable, yet it had a depth to it that took it to the level of fantastic! This one is a fast read, and the pages turned steadily. I loved the Roaring 20's setting, and the way that the characters interacted with each other. And yes, by the end I had fallen under Lilly's enchanting spell :)
Overall, a completely charming book that is one of my personal favorites. Allison Pittman has done it again; written a book that I love. I would highly recommend this book!
I recieved this book from the publisher in return for an honest review!

This book was quite the page turner. You never knew which direction it was going to take. I can't say that I recall reading any of Allison's books so was very pleasantly pleased. I will be looking for more of her books in the future. The theme of this book is letting go of the past and forgiveness.

Fun, fun, fun!
Lilly Margolis and Cullen Burnside are about as opposite as two people could possibly be. He's the tortured, scarred, reclusive hero. She's the carefree, beautiful, unfettered flapper who drops into his world and turns it upside down.
While Lilly upends Cullen's life, he and his sweet, gracious, ever-more-senile mother set hers to rights. Cozily ensconced in their palatial home, she finds much more than a world of more wealth than she's ever dreamed of. Lilly learns about family and faithâ€¦and what love really means.
When push comes to shove, it's a road trip across the country with a car full of varied personalities that brings some answers and clears the way for love to work its magicâ€¦if the war hero is brave enough, and the girl forgiving enough.
I loved this storyline. Fun, entertaining, touching, and absolutely believable. Add well-written to the mix, and Allison Pittman definitely hit one out of the ballpark with Lilies in Moonlight. Very highly recommended!

I have decided that I'm not really a romantic novel type person. The book was very well-written and enjoyable, but it just isn't my kind of book. The plot was a nice change from boy-meets-girl-gets-married. It definitely had a unique twist on the normal love story novels, which I liked. The first few chapters kept me reading, but the middle got a little slow for me. If you like romantic novels, you would probably enjoy this book...I'm just more of a mystery girl!

I have just finished reading "Lillies in Moonlight" by Allison Pittman. This book was set in the 1920's. The main characther, Lilly Margolis, is a young adult searching for the love that was never given to her by her mother. Through a series of events, she finds herself in the home of wealthy and sweet Betty Ruth, who suffers with dementia and her son, Cullen, who suffers from both physical and emotional scars from his past. The three form a bond and healing is just around the corner! "Lilies in Moonlight" is the 2nd Allison Pittman book I've read. I really enjoy the way Allison writes. Her books are easy to read, I enjoy her characters, and I really love how she brings in the gospel! A sweet read I would recommend to anyone!
