Finding the Moon
A Novel by Lisa Snider
Susan is a career-driven young woman on the verge of 30 working at a world-class resort in a funky new age town. From a ballroom on New Year's Eve 1999, where the balloon drop is filled with helium, a CEO drinks from his shoe and everyone proposes marriage, her notion of success is challenged. One night, under the glow of the full moon, Susan surrenders to romance and struggles to balance love with a job that's 24/7. She is torn between her aspirations in the corporate hospitality business and the hippie culture she now calls home. Susan's search for success and status lead her to a place she's never been; she finds herself.
