Drawing Down The Moon
Betrayal, lost babies, and terrifying nightmares follow Jade Montgomery to James Island, North Carolina. Damaged and devastated by her third miscarriage and deteriorating marriage, she drives to the strip of sand north of Wilmington to end her life. In DRAWING DOWN THE MOON, Jade survives her suicide attempt and is befriended by Agnes, a mysterious older woman, who uses her own devastation and mystical Wiccan wisdom to help her discover motherhood does not define womanhood. While still reeling from her breakdown, a forgotten reunion brings estranged sorority sisters back to the island of their college summers before suspicions and secrets separated them for decades. Jade’s challenge is to uncover her authentic self, confront her demons, and find joy in the journey. This is a story of resilience, finding courage in spite of fear, and accepting that our life never unfolds as we imagine. It celebrates the feminine connection and the tenacity, humor, and spirit needed to uplift each other through the triumphs and tragedies of life.
