Danica Pavlova does not think she is worthy enough of a family of her own, or the love of a good man. She has abandonment issues stemming from her Gypsy mother leaving when she was only a baby.

Ten years later, Danica gets a phone call that changes her entire life. Her brother Peter needs her to come home to North Carolina because h

Interesting composition. Eye-catching colors, strong title font, distant silhouettes in place of prominently seen characters. Synopsis sounds much like many other second-chance storylines.

Danica was so afraid she would turn out like her absentee mother that she basically did everything she could to ensure it. Often her actions did not match up with her heart. She was a

She walks in Moonlight is a very poignant tale of a young woman who is very much a "free spirit", who is running away from her own fears.

Born out of love, her gypsy mother could not stay in a relationship or one spot. Haunted by this legacy, Danica was certain it was in her blood, too...It was a curse!

When her best friend, whom she truly loved, was injured in an accident, Danica knew it was ultimately her fault. She fled!

This is a tale about a very young girl who never felt she fit into any cult

So I always feel funny reading my own novels. But my paperback copies came in the mail the other day, and I started reading. And then I read the whole book, lol. While I vividly remember writing this, it's been long enough that I was able to dive into the actual story. I didn't realize how much of myself and my past I poured into this novel, but it brought back a lot of old feelings for me. And it makes me want to write more contemporary romance. :)

After a decade away from home, Danica’s brother Peter calls her, needing her home. He has leukemia and needs help with his children. Danica would have never dreamed of returning home, she’s run from her past for so long. But her brother needs her, so she hops on a plane and returns. Knowing that it will certainly mean she will run into her ex, Adam.

There are two stories at play here. We have the love angle with Danica and Adam, and then we have Peter struggling with his illness. There were a fe

This second chance story is about a Russian globetrotter – Danica who is called back home to America after 10 years. Ten years ago she ran away from her one and only true love – Adam King. Now her brother is sick with leukemia, the same disease that stole their father away from them when she was ten years old.

Let me be clear – this is one of those books where the story line is well thought out and put on paper that you can sit and read it in one sitting. I loved that about this book. The charact

She Walks in Moonlight is a beautiful story. This is the first book I'm reading from Jennifer Silverwood. The lead character Zwezda Danica Pavlova comes to USA from Russia at the age of 8. She meets Adam King in her new school. They become best friends instantly. They grow together but Zwezda's bad past experiences and her gypsy mother influence push her to leave everything she loves behind and run to Russia. She comes back to USA to help her brother who is suffering from cancer to raise his kid ...more

She Walks In The Moonlight is a beautifully written story of a young woman finding herself after running away from her childhood sweetheart the night after she caused his accident. Zvezda Danica Pavlova was abandoned by her gypsy mother who left her when she was a child with only a box of tarot cards to remember her by. And although Dani, as her family calls her, resents her mother for the way she left her, she finds herself doing the same thing.
However, despite her carefree way of living, she i

Jennifer and I are critique partners, so I had the pleasure of reading an early edition of She Walks in Moonlight, and I've just finished (re)reading the final.

The story follows Danica Pavlova, scarred by abandonment and doomed to repeat the same mistakes as her mother. After a horrible accident, teen-aged Danica runs out on her one true love, traveling the globe to escape facing the hardship (and her trust issues), and leaving her only family in the process. Ten years later, a fateful phone cal

First impression Dani is a coward, second she’s what everyone thought she was. It’s soon clear to see she’s got abandonment issues. It was easy to get into the story from the start, I was relieved when the tragedy was light hearted otherwise I’d still be trying to get through it and bawling like a baby. Half way through and I’m tearing up because the story gets deeper and the pain gets real and there go the heart strings. There wasn’t actually anything I didn’t like about this story, I liked the ...more
