Not since Gone with the Wind has a book told the Souths story in the way that New Moon Rising does. Miss Price has a feeling for the land, for its beauty and its secrets.
This is more than a Civil War novel, more than a romance, more than an adventure story. . .This is a novel even for those who don't read fiction, a historical drama for those whom history bores, and a revelation of insights for those who pooh-pooh psychology. This is a book to be read, without qualification.
In New Moon Rising, Eugenia Price gives us a story of faith and courage that follows the struggle of James Gould's son Horace to find his own place in life. Reaching manhood in the tumultuous years before the Civil War, Horace returns to St. Simons and finds himself disheartened by the intolerance on his beloved island. However, he wins the heart of lovely neighbor Deborah Abbott, who adores her "Mr. Gould" and becomes his wife, despite the difference in their years. She is not concerned with his rumored past, but she is saddened by his lack of faith.
Filled with romance, hardship, and adventure, this sequel to Lighthouse vividly portrays the antebellum South while revealing an independent man's search for happiness.
About the Author
Before making St. Simons Island her home, Eugenia Price, a native of Charleston, West Virginia, was a resident of Chicago with a highly successful career in the thiriving area of radio soap-opera programming. The major networks eagerly sought her creative production talents and Price was well respected in the broadcasting world when her life took a marvelous and powerful turn. God began to use her extraordinary writing gifts to communicate her faith with others.
Price's earliest books (Discoveries, The Burden Is Light, and Early Will I Seek Thee) gained her enormous popularity as a speaker at religious groups from across the nation and across all denominational lines. Her compelling message was not about doctrine, but about new birth. In rapid succession she wrote books dealing with Christian living, women's faith perspectives, and devotional themes. Her masterful rephrasing of the entire Bible, Beloved World, went through countless printings. Twenty-six highly personal nonfiction works and fourteen novels were ultimately released by the leading publishers of the day.
Eugenia Price died on May 28, 1996, and is buried at her beloved Christ Churchyard, Frederica, St. Simons Island. Following her death, the Eudgenia Price/Joyce Blackburn Charitable Foundation was established with Blackburn, also a prolific writer, as president. The Foundation holds all publishing rights in perpetuity. Its sustaining purpose is to ensure the availablilty of this written legacy for future generations of readers.
