The story of "50" year old Nan, a wife and mother who suddenly decides to pick up and leave home for awhile. Nan is learning to accept that she's fifty. Stopping in various town, cities, villages and farms she meets some interesting people and through them she begins to understand herself, to accept what she's missed and to really know what she wants at this stage of her life. Being "almost" 50 myself, I could relate to alot of what she was saying. Oh, how nice that would be sometimes to just pack up and drive anywhere, stop where you want, eat when and where you want, no one to answer to, no one pulling at you from all different directions. Who knows, perhaps someday I myself might be a "Nan!" LOL From back cover: "Dear Martin: I'm sorry the note I left you was so abrupt, I just wanted you to know I was safe...I won't be back for awhile. I'm on a trip. I needed all of a sudden to go, without saying where, because I don't know where. I know this is not like me. I know that. But please believe me, I am safe and I am not crazy, I felt as though if I didn't do this I wouldn't be safe and I would be crazy... And can you believe this? I love you Nan Sometimes you may have to leave your life behind for awhile to see it and really live it freshly again. In this luminous, exquisitely written novel, a woman follows the pull of the moon to find her way home. Sometimes humorous, sometimes heartbreaking, always honest. The Pull of the Moon is a novel about the journey of one woman and about the issues of the heart that transform the lives of all women."
