When Amanda Kincaid comes to Long Island for her family's annual beach vacation, she can't help but reflect on the many recent—and significant—changes in her life. Her mother has passed away after years of mental illness. Her beloved daughter has left for college. Her twenty-year marriage is falling apart. And she secretly fears she may be pregnant again.

During a week of sun and shadows, Amanda discovers some shocking things about the past. But she also starts thinking more about what she wants for her future— especially after she meets Michael Burns, a doctor and musician summering nearby. Evocative and emotionally powerful, Forgive the Moon is a deeply affecting novel of family and forgiveness, betrayal and renewal—and the ways, both slow and sudden, that the seasons of our lives can change.
