Helen has reached her breaking point. Her life suddenly starts unraveling and she finds herself committing a terrible act. Now during the course of the next twenty-four hours, Helen Knightly will reflect back on her life with her parents, her husband and her now grown children. Helen calls the one person who knows can help her with her situation…her ex-husband Jake. While Helen waits for Jake to arrive; Helen will try to make sense of how she got to this point in her life. The people who mattered the most in Helen’s life are now all gone. As Helen looks back at her childhood, she wonders how she ever survived it. Then there was her marriage to Jake. Jake was so handsome and Helen was so in love with him. Now Helen tries to figure out how she and Jake fell out of love so fast. The next twenty-four hours will be the most trying time that Helen ever experienced.
At first I thought Helen was uncaring and whiny but as the story progressed and I understood where Helen was coming from I wouldn’t say I loved her but I did like her a little better. I really liked Jake. He was a good guy to come to Helen’s rescue even though I didn’t think that Helen deserved Jake again. The Almost Moon was a sharp, psychological thriller. It made both Helen and the reader do some deep thinking but in a good way. Thoughts that made you want to keep reading to see what would happen next and how the book would end. The Almost Moon is the first book I have read by Alice Sebold. Mrs. Sebold did a good job with this novel. If readers are looking for something new to read then they should try Alice Sebold.
