A wonderful epic!

After reading Too Deep for Tears and All We Hold Dear, I opened this book with anticipation. It did not disappoint me. This time, the story focuses on the Rose women ~~ Mairi, Aisla, Alanna and Ena, Aisla's daughter with Ian Fraser. And this time, my questions about Lian and Genevra have been answered as their stories after leaving the Glenn have been told. It's a relief to have those two back in the book again! Ena is a young girl soon to be a woman ~~ she's on the edge of childhood and womanhood and a lot of the story focuses on her and the choices she had to make. Aisla is still grieving for Ian, her love of her life and Alanna is disappointed because she has only one child ~~ she longs for more children to fill her home. Together, they live in peace with Mairi in the center. Drawn home after sixteen years of living elsewhere, Genevra and Lian came to visit. All of these women ~~ bound together by blood relations and by grief have learned the simple fact that united ~~ no one can break them. It is a beautiful novel ~~ oftentimes too wordy (and sometimes, repetitive in passages) ~~ it draws the Rose women back into your imagination and their stories they tell are still very powerful. The reason why it's a four stars instead of a five ~ too wordy. I find myself getting impatient with a lot of the drawn-out scenes ~~ and find myself skipping ahead. That is my only complaint about this wonderful novel!! This is a perfect book for those long autumn nights ahead ~~ so enjoy it! 10-1-05

A book that will touch your soul!!

As a woman myself, this book is a great read. It touched me in places, that had long since died. Its the journey of four women, sisters, from all different corners of the world. They come together, for there fathers funeral. This book is the discovery of what every woman goes through, the discover of strength, they didnt know they had, of friendships that are reborn again, and learning to trust your heart. Read this on it will take you on a journey of yourself also. Let it make you cry, laugh, and smile so big, you think your heart will burst. A MUST READ BOOK.

A real writer!

I love all of Kathryn's books and SOMEWHERE LIES THE MOON has to be one of her best. Oh, what am I saying? They're all terrific reads, brimming with emotion, fully developed characters, plots and rich settings. Suspense lies inside the hearts' of these characters, and she keeps you wondering about them long after you've closed the book. All of her books are keepers for me, I just wish she would write faster. It's probably one of the reasons why many don't know about this wonderful author. If you like richly told novels, real novels with characters that stay with you for years to come, don't miss this book.

A beautiful book!

Kathryn Lynn Davis is the kind of writer you rarely see anymore. In this world of instant gratification, it seems like no one takes the time and care to write really satisfying, evocative stories--but Ms. Davis is the wonderful exception. SOMEWHERE is a book you can truly curl up with and enjoy for hours on end, savoring its characters and settings, its passion and wisdom. Like THE SHELL SEEKERS or THE THORN BIRDS, it will give you days of pleasure and you'll wish for it never to end.

Excellent historical romance

Following the death of her English husband, Ailsa Rose returns to the Scottish highlands she always cherished. She meets Ian Frasier, who dies before she gives birth to their child Ena. Of all the Rose clan, no one seems quite at home in the wilds as Ena, who loves nature. However, as the nineteenth century winds down, Ena is no longer a child running wild. She has blossomed into a beautiful woman with all the needs and hopes, but remains a diamond in the rough. However, as with her mother, grandmother, and aunts before her, Ena will soon learn how to live and give as she discovers the treasure and pain of love. SOMEWHERE LIES THE MOON is the third epic tale starring the Rose women. As with its predecessors (TOO DEEP FOR TEARS and ALL WE HOLD DEAR), this novel is extremely complex with many subplots that tie back into a deep, poignant journey of discovery. The story line is more than a coming of age tale. Instead, the plot focuses on balancing love and caring with cherishing an inner harmony. What makes this trilogy a rare find is that readers will reassess personal values after traveling with the Rose brood.Harriet Klausner
