The Long Night Moon
Darcie has grown up in a wealthy home in a big city, indulged and out of control. Wasi, a Cherokee Indian, lives a quiet tribal life in the mountains of North Carolina. He lost his wife and child in an accident and believes such joy will never light his life again. Their paths cross when Darcie is moved to the family's mountain home for the term of her unexpected and unwanted pregnancy. Thus begins the growth and transformation of two souls who need each other but have to face their failings in order to move on.
About Elizabeth Towles (Charlotte, North Carolina Author)
When I was very young I entertained myself by making up stories. There were times that I would have to go outdoors because the story inside my head turned too scary to be alone inside my house. I thrilled at the places my mind could imagine and let myself soar and time was of no matter. As I got older, I was the neighborhood story-teller. And later on in life even as I worked in a career that didn't involve engaging in my favorite mind-quest, I always knew in my heart that someday I would return to story-telling. In the last sixteen years I again took up my love for writing. I've been lucky to have received awards for short stories as well as having two books published by Hartwood Publishing. I have had several book signings and public speaking events about my works, The House On Sunflower Road and The Long Night Moon. Yet, the overriding advantage of my ventures into writing have offered me another enjoyment that I am totally grateful for--the research I've had to do for all my works has given me another gift--I am always smarter when I finish a book than I was at the beginning. Knowledge delights the mind!
