only shy of 5 because of some poor editing. The story was fabulousReviewed in the United States on 7 December 2016
If possible, this would be a 4.5 star review, only shy of 5 because of some poor editing. The story was fabulous. Who among us would not want to find out what became of the one who got away? What happens when an unexpected twist of fate brings a man and a woman together again, face to face, after nearly 30 years? What will happen to their marriages, their families, their lives? I LOVED that Callahan did NOT take the easy way out and turn this novel into a fairy tale. Her characters were imperfect and pained, but not bad people. The writing was beautiful, though I was constantly irked by the numerous time the author had her male characters lift the chins of the females, touching their faces, etc. Once or twice to have done so would have gone unnoticed, but the same movement happened so many times that it because annoying (thus my gripe is with the editor who failed to remove and change the repetitive wording). I loved the book, as I have other of her works. Great southern writing, relatable tales, raw emotion, nothing trite or too predicable....all of these make this author's novels favorites of mine.

Terrible ending.Reviewed in the United States on 7 October 2019
I rarely write reviews for anything but I had to put my 2 cents in on this one. I give it 2 stars for keeping my attention but the ending was soul-sucking for me. Terrible! To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. I won't be reading any more from this author.

Not my favoriteReviewed in the United States on 30 December 2020
I almost never finish a book but half way through this one I stopped. I really like this author but this book was just so hard to get into.

storytellerReviewed in the United States on 18 May 2008
Losing The Moon is the story of young love lost and a chance at finding it again. The question is: how high is the price to regain what Amy and Nick had years ago. Years before marriage and children. Nick enters Amy's life when she is feeling lost. Her children are almost grown, her husband is busy and shares little of her passion for preservation of old houses and the historic value of houses and land. She and Nick had once shared these things. He had left on a trip and never returned to her. They were both duped by his now wife but neither knew it until now. Will they pay the ultimate price and leave their safe lives or will family and hope win out. Amy is at the age when her life is changing fast. The empty nest syndrome is setting in just when her college love returns. She's torn because she feels lost and would love to recapture the feelings she had once had for Nick. The empty nest part of a woman's life is difficult to navigate at best. When her husband turns a deaf ear to her feelings of emptiness she is drawn even more to Nick and their lost love. I really enjoyed this book. The empty nest syndrome is a hard one to get through. Finding a new passion or discovering an old one is what moves us into the next stage of our lives!
