Welcome again to Book Blurb Friday.  If you’re a newbie, here’s the scoop so you understand what follows.  Please click HERE or click the tab under the blog header for details of the Book Blurb Friday meme.  This is the shortened, abridged version:

Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.

Below is this week’s “book cover,” offered for our creative blurbs by my daughter and aspiring photographer, Christina.  My blurb follows.

Moon Star
(150 words)

Brenna James is a country girl who made it big.  She’s a multimedia princess with an Oscar, an Emmy, and a platinum album hanging on the wall. Her life is charmed until an automobile accident leaves her famous face so disfigured that even plastic surgery cannot undo the damage.
Hollywood can forgive anything except the loss of beauty.
Unable to continue her entertainment career, Brenna returns home to the little Southern town of Moon Star, Alabama.  Here she finds the family and friends she left behind, bitter rivalries that rise again, and old wounds that never quite healed. There are lessons to be learned and atonement to be made; and as Brenna comes to terms with her shattered face and ruined career, it is a love she believed long lost that might just be the miracle that redeems her.
A story of loss, love, and the substance of true beauty.
