Lilly Margolis is a door to door saleswoman selling Lillies in Moonlight, a body creme by Dalliance Cosmetics. But she is having a hard time even selling one jar. That is, until she gets to the Burnside’s home where she meets Betty Ruth, a very rich widow who buys everything Lilly has on her. Just days later, she finds herself at the same house after going to a party and falling over the wall into the backyard of the Burnside’s home. There she stays as a guest while recovering from her fall, and gets to know the family. Betty Ruth has dementia and leads a lonely life until Lilly comes along, and Betty Ruth’s son, Cullen, a former baseball player who went to fight in the Great War before coming home disfigured. As Lilly gets to know the family and they get to know her, all of their lives change.
This is a fun story that had some unexpected turns and a satisfying ending. Lillies in Moonlight is the first book by Alison Pittman that I have read and I look forward to reading more of her books.
I give this book 4.5 stars.
I received the book from Waterbrook Multnomah for the purpose of this review.
