"In this novel of second chances, the conflicts begin because Emmett remarries quickly and brings his new wife, Helen, into the world he had occupied with Rosalyn before her puzzling death. At Helen’s insistence, the couple retreats for the summer to the grand and eerie mansion in the mountains of Highlands, N.C., known as Moonrise, the estate that Emmett has inherited from Rosalyn." So begins the description of Moonrise by Cassandra King. The novelist not only weaves a compelling mystery but is married to author Pat Conroy. She'll read at Malaprop’s on Monday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. malaprops.com. Photo by Tamara Reynolds
