"A beautiful love story for the mainstream crowd"
Leigh is married to a senior congressman. They have three
beautiful children and a fantastic home in Virginia. Yet
Leigh is totally miserable. Her husband is always on the
run and never has time for her. The little time they spend
together is celibate because he's impotent at least with
her. Her esteem has sunk to an all time low when a
postgraduate exchange student from Denmark comes to stay
with them for a year.
From the time they set eyes on each other, Leigh and Erik
have a red hot molten attraction for one another. Leigh
resists going to bed with him until she finds some condoms
in her husband's bag. She knows then that he is cheating
on her because she had a tubal ligation years ago. Thus
Leigh and Eric have an affair but have much to overcome,
including another woman, if they want to make a life
Carla Bellacera has written a fabulous relationship drama
in which people make bad decisions for the right reasons, a
practice that leads to heartache for everyone concerned.
EAST OF THE SUN, WEST OF THE MOON is a beautiful love story
that will appeal to fans of Belva Plain and Laura van
