First Lines...

"Father Aiden O'Brien was hearing confessions in the lower church of St. Francis of Assisi on West Thirty-first Street in Manhattan. The seventy-eight-year-old Franciscan friar approved of the alternate way of administering the sacrament, that of having the penitent sit on the Reconciliation Room with him, rather than kneeling on the hard wood of the confessional with a screen hiding his or her identity."
I'll Walk Alone by Mary Higgins Clark
Release Date April 5, 2011
For mystery fans, Mary Higgins Clark is a sure bet! Always a satisfying read, and this new mystery is no different! Who walks in to confess and what they are confessing is the start of this great read! Watch for my review...

I love the name of your lighting blue moon. It sounds quite pretty. Hardwood floor is the the first thing we did when we moved in.

I am a huge MHC fan. I will have to check out this book.

Hi Esme!
Yes, it's a little round light made out of blue blown glass and at night it looks like a small moon glowing in the dark.

I love MHC too! I actually met her once at a book signing at the soon to be defunct Borders down the road from me. She was as elegant and nice as you would!
