Product Description

An Award-winning book that recently earned acclaim from the prestigious Next Generation Indie Book Awards! Set in the American Southwest, 'Edna & Luna' is the story of two women: a lonely, recently widowed eccentric, and a much younger new age healer. Facing old age and a hysterectomy, Edna, at 70, reminisces and ruminates about her losses as she makes unsuccessful attempts to start a new life. She tries to befriend her hairdresser, her gardener, and a man she meets at a senior dance who makes sexual advances in the swimming pool. Luna, at 35, ridiculed since childhood for her unorthodox gift of healing, has left a violent husband before moving to a local trailer park. Despite Edna's initial suspicions that Luna is both out of her mind and after her money, their relationship becomes an odyssey filled with unpredictable depths and discoveries for both women.

4.0 out of 5 stars Offbeat 15 January 2017
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Thanks to Leah Powers who asked me to review her book. I enjoyed it very much as it reminded me of Fannie Flagg's "Fried Green Tomatoes". Two very diverse women coming together through odd circumstances and forming a deep relationship. Each completed the other in ways neither expected, as they forged a loving family. This book was sweetly delicious. I am editing my review as I forgot the G in Gleah. I knew better my typing fingers did not. My apologies to "Gleah"
4.0 out of 5 stars A Different Friendship 17 February 2017
By LawLady - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"Edna and Luna," a first novel, concerns an improbable friendship which, to our delight and the fellowship of these very likeable and sympathetic characters, works. The opening chapters of the story prepare us for them to meet by telling us their backstories, each in the context of her past relationships and in the light of their current predicaments. We see them both in moments of interaction with others, each scene extremely well conceived and quite real.

And then they meet and meet again. At first glance, they would appear to be virtual opposites, from different generations and wildly disparate backgrounds, but Luna, a grown flower-child and a mystic, is determined to help Edna, a lonely and ailing widow. The result is an unlikely but delightful relationship.

I devoured this novel in one sitting, finding it both lyrical and witty. I look forward to whatever Gleah Powers has next up her sleeve.
5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Read on Women and Love 7 February 2017

Gleah Powers weaves her word magic to create a delightful relationship between two women of different sorts. Luna loves and Edna definitely needs to be loved but resists until Luna enters her life while shopping in the produce section. It's touching without falling into sentimentality. It's funny with a twist of fate that saves both women and allows them to create their own family where love and laughter thrive along with some surprises. I look forward to Powers' next book with gleeful anticipation.

Lovely tale of an accidental friendship between two very different women. Beautifully told in well written prose that skips along in easy, fast paced yet thoughtful prose. Gleah Powers is a new writer to me, but I will check out her past books and look forward to future work.
5.0 out of 5 stars She liked the young pregnant mother's journey over time 7 February 2017

I lent this book to my mom before I got to read it. She said 4 1/2 stars, so I'm rounding up. She felt the author was original. The plot was well-presented. She liked the young pregnant mother's journey over time. She thought the relationship between the younger woman and the older was woman was poignant. Now I want to get my book back! - Theresa Milstein
