A timeless tale of young romance. Lorona Connelly is ready for a change from her carefully planned, bookish life. When sparks fly at a costume party, she embraces a chance for romance with the handsome Kestrin Feather. However, she quickly realizes that even love and destiny may not be enough to overcome the reality of an overprotective mother-in-law and Kestrin's long, tarnished history of relationships. When Lorona's curiosity leads her to Kestrin's journal, doubt plagues them both with insecurities and threatens the relationship. Can true love overcome the odds, or was their whirlwind romance just a frivolous crush? Author Elise Stephens shares a journey of young love, fate, and wounded trust in the story of Lorona and Kestrin, a couple who must learn to overcome their fears to share a life together.
I want to say first that I really enjoyed this book. Yes there are a few things that I didn't like, but it didn't take away from the enjoyment I had reading Moonlight and Oranges.
So let's start with the good things about this book, I loved the plot of this story. It was very interesting and very well written.
The story flows pretty well, even though there were a few times that I had to reread something to make sure I had read it write. This story follows a very classic way of telling a story and it was very refreshing reading it. The characters were very well thought out, but I just wish we could have seen more about their past and who they really are.
I enjoyed all the descriptions in this book, making this book feel like a piece of art, which is what makes it such a great book. This book is based off of a myth and I love how the author made it more modern and brought it to life on the pages. By the end of this book I was on the edge of my seat and couldn't stop reading till I knew what was going to happen. I was hooked!
