Moondrop Miracle by Jennifer Lamont Leo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is one of those books that I bought a long time ago, always meant to read, and somehow didn’t get around to. Whyever did I wait so long?! It’s a wonderful story set in Chicago at the start of the Great Depression. Jennifer Lamont Leo reconstructs a country in turmoil when the money disappeared and families broke apart and people many times had to relearn how to survive.
Connie has it all, a wealthy husband she loves, a beautiful home, and the support of loving parents and a rather eccentric aunt. And then the unthinkable happens. We walk with her through the process of losing the things she most valued, only to find that sometimes the most valuable things of all are those you can’t purchase with coins.
The story is a study in courage, integrity, and a willingness to change and grow rather than give in to despair.
