THE MOON SISTERS, by Therese Walsh, is a great story, well told, with grief, and biscuits, and tattoos. It is the story of two young women, Olivia and Jazz, who've lost their mother. On the heels of her death, they are unanchored from their place inside the world, their sense of home and all its easy truths. Olivia, the dreamer, sets off for Cranberry Glades with their mother's ashes, in search of the will-o-the-wisp ghost lights that could set everything to rights. Jazz, her more practical sister, tries to stop the trip before it starts. When that fails, she goes along to keep the journey inside the boundaries of sense and self-control.
But it's not that kind of trip. The path these sisters take is hard and wild and ragged. Along the way, Olivia and Jazz fight like demons and hold to each other like salvation. This is a novel about grief and persistence, about dreams gone awry and dreams that must be followed to the end. It is a tale both lyrical and biting, moving through the swell and ebb of loss and mourning. It is not an easy trip, and the end is anything but predictable.
