Readers fell in love with Eve and Ruby in Jay Gilbertson's hilarious, heartwarming debut novel, Moon Over Madeline Island. Now a whole new set of adventures are in store for the fabulous ladies of the lake . . .

Things have been good for Eve and Ruby ever since they moved to Madeline Island in northern Wisconsin. Their apron-making business has taken off, their once-dilapidated cottage is now the envy of the town, they've made great new friends, and there's always lots of love and laughter. But there's still something missing from Eve's life--her daughter. When she was just seventeen, Eve gave her up for adoption--and not a day has gone by where she hasn't wondered . . .

Professor Helen Williams isn't sure what to make of the breezy letter from her "biological" mother, inviting her for a visit as if they've been dear pals who just happened to lose touch. She's not so sure she wants to know this woman who decided to pass her off to someone else. But curiosity gets the better of her, and soon Helen finds herself careening through the middle of Eve and Ruby's marvelous, madcap world. And before long, she's realizing that getting to know her new mother is the best gift of all . . .

"Filled with colorful female characters . . . a book that will put you in a good mood." --EDGE Boston on Moon Over Madeline Island

Jay Gilbertson owns a hairdressing salon in the Twin Cities, farms forty organic acres in Prairie Farm, Wisconsin, and loves to watch the fruit ripen, put up pickles, and listen to the blues.
