Jo Evans is eight years old. She loves her mama and wants nothing more than for them to be safe from her abusive father. So, when her mother, Catherine, decides they should leave, Jo packs her few belongings and readies herself for their escape to Wimbee Island, South Carolina, to her Grandmother Bibba’s house.
Homecomings are never easy and when Jo and her family settle in at Bibba’s, Jo realizes she’s connected to a past she knows nothing about.
Three generations of women.
Three generations of abuse, lies, and betrayal.
Later, as an adult, when Jo becomes a wife and mother, she longs to feel grounded in her roles. She knows she must return and face the dark moments of that summer spent on Wimbee.
MAD MOON is a unique storytelling exploration of childhood memories and the affect trauma can have throughout adulthood. It’s also a poignant peek into real love, the importance of friendship, how deeply connected women’s stories can be and how that revelation can wash away sorrows of the past.
