Lisey’s Story

Summary:

Lisa “Lisey” Landon is the widow of famous novelist Scott Landon, who died two years earlier. She’s still grieving his loss when a deranged fan starts stalking her in an attempt to get her husband’s unpublished writing. In order to stop him–and come to terms with who she was with Scott and who she is without him–Lisey has to enter the dangerous and fantastical world of Boo’ya Moon, where Scott used to go to escape his painful childhood, and also dive deep into difficult memories of her own.
