In Book 2 of the Hallowed Halls series, when Dr.
Myra Maxwell finds herself stumbling through the darkness of a cemetery
on a cold winter night, she realizes she doesn't recognize a thing,
and doesn't recall how she arrived here. As Christmas fireworks
begin, they frighten her. She doesn't know who she is, where she
is, or why she's here. She diagnoses herself as a patient in a fugue
state, most likely from some horrible experience her mind is working
to force her to forget. But why?
Weston Cline is frantic about the woman he loves.
She left her psychiatry clinic in the middle of the day on Christmas
Eve, and he's heard nothing from her since. When he makes a call
to her hometown of Juliet, Missouri, he catches a word or two that
convinces him she's retreated to the place she feels safest, and
he is determined to drive there tonight and protect her. Unfortunately,
her friends, Drs. Joy Gilbert and Zachary Travis are determined
to keep Weston away from Myra. He's shown his true colors in outrageous
ways in the past year, and they don't want to risk her emotional
well-being with his presence. Too bad, because he's going anyway,
and he will stand firm with her.
Set at Christmas, Dandelion Moon might
well give holiday celebrants a chance to root for the true meaning
of Christmas to show itself at least one more time, and to find that
miracles really do happen.
