Under the Crescent Moon is a short novella set in South Carolina's lush low country, and is one story told in two separate parts. The first part of the story is told through the first-person voice of Elise, an 80-year-old woman, who sets out bravely on her own to discover and hopefully live the life she was supposed to. As she journeys down a sea-island parkway, she recounts her first love through flashback. Though separated decades ago, she is sure that second chances happen and that she will be reunited with her one true love. But will she? In an emotional twist of fate she is reunited with something even more precious. In the second part of the story, a southern writer publishes her one work of fiction right before she dies, but it is more than a story it is message to her true love that opens with a haunting dedication: Find Our Baby. The writer's true love accidentally discovers the book when his wife's book club assigns it. This is a story of aching separation, reunion and redemption.
