Envious Moon is a harrowing tale of the sometimes dark obsession, and often sensual beauty, that accompanies young love. With a nod to Romeo and Juliet and reminiscent of Endless Love, Thomas Christopher Greene tells the story of two young lovers and their journey to find perfection in each other's arms.
When young Anthony Lopes and his best friend set out from the small fishing community of Galilee, Rhode Island, to commit what they believe will be a victimless crime, they never imagined that it would change their lives forever.
They expected the mansion on the island bluffs to be empty. But inside they find a man and his daughter, Hannah. Haunted by her fleeting image and convinced he can atone for what happens to her father, Anthony is determined to find her.
Filled with the dazzling narrative drive, lyric prose, and compelling characterizations that have earned Thomas Christopher Greene the admiration of Nelson DeMille, Bret Lott, and Susan Cheever, Envious Moon is a luminous, highly original, and riveting novel about what it means to love, and be loved.
Praise For Envious Moon…
“A stark modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet…but Shakespeare as reinterpreted by Greene still has the power to shock.”
“A book as incandescent as it is disturbing . . . a powerful tale of chance, love, loss and redemption.”
