Moonshine

by: Deirdre Palmer

Summer, 1969.

It’s a night when anything seems possible, no dream out of reach.

As Apollo 11 hurtles into space and Neil Armstrong sets foot on the moon, South Londoners Carol-Anne, Terry and Mark join the celebrations at an all-night party in a holiday camp in Devon. But as the cheers go up, one of their group is missing: Carol-Anne’s teenage sister, Beverly.

When Beverly is discovered in tears back at their caravan, she has a story to tell that knocks the moonwalk into second place. But can it really be true? The special night falls into chaos as loyalties are tested to the limit, with accusations hurled about like beach balls.

With Beverly becoming more of a liability minute by minute, it seems best to head back to London. But back home, each of the group is forced to confront the troubles they thought they’d left behind.

Has the holiday put an end to their friendship, or can they work out what happened and stay friends?

Moonshine is the sequel to Dirty Weekend.

Meet the Author
avatar-author
Deirdre lives in Brighton, on the south coast of England, the town where she was born.   Brighton and the surrounding Sussex countryside are a great source of inspiration for her novels. At the age of nine, having learned the word ‘author’ and liking the sound of it, she banged out Enid Blyton rip-offs on an old typewriter.  The writerly ambition went into hibernation after that, but it was always there, through life in general and a career in university administration, at which point it emerged pretty much unscathed and clamouring for attention. Deirdre is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, having ‘graduated’ from the association’s New Writers’ Scheme on publication of her first novel, Remarkable Things. She was twice a major prize-winner in the Mail on Sunday Novel Competition.  As well as novels, she enjoys writing short stories and is published by D C Thomson in The People’s Friend magazine.
