Ever since she could remember, Robin wanted to be more than best friends with Tommy. But college antics, NYC's SantaCon, and too much beer modified that. It also paved the way for the truth.
Their careers take them in different directions; she to the Adirondack Mountains, he to the heart of Manhattan. They explore love interests of their own and their friendship is put to the test. Robin's path leads to the man of her dreams, while Tommy leads in an Off-Broadway production that seems to mimic his own pendulous life. Still, they remain each other's "person"—the one whom the other always calls. But mistrust and conflict swarm them.
A distraught and helpless Tommy spirals out of sight and Robin devises a plan to make him resurface. She plans to save him yet he thinks she is the one who needs saving. A dangerous lightning storm rolls into town and much more than trees come crashing down. With excruciating consequences, a family secret gets exposed, a proposal is foiled, a friend goes missing, and a masquerade is in full swing.
Using dialogue effectively throughout, Scantlebury brings a variety of characters to Life. They are eclectic as they are endearing, making the story both compelling and relevant. The Sun and The Moon is a story of love and friendship in a modern-day setting, stressing the importance of how a best friend's support is vital when dealing with life.
This compelling debut, with real life events and a cult like list of "must see" places, will find its way into the hearts of people who crave the truth and seek definitive stories.
