MOONDROP MIRACLE

Chicago, 1928. Connie Shepherd lives the kind of glossy life other women read about in the society pages. Engaged to a handsome financier, she spends her days and nights in a dizzying social round.

But when disaster flings her privileged world into chaos and throws her back on her own resources, will Aunt Pearls strange gift provide the key to survival?

By turns heartbreaking and hope-filled, Moondrop Miracle tells the story of an extraordinary and unforgettable woman whose determination to succeed changes her life forever.
