Willow Trudeau is looking for the home she never had and for a father, Leon Ziemny, about whom she knows only his name. Abandoning college, she leaves California to journey to a deteriorating ethnic neighborhood in Indiana where she first encounters her grandfather, Walt, owner of a dying tavern, who’s just been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The two of them forge an immediate bond, but she does not disclose her identity to him, or to her father Leon, who is in denial about his own father’s diagnosis. As Walt descends into dementia and the entire family is thrown into chaos, Willow—still concealing her identity from them—seems to be the only one who can provide the balm for Walt’s ailing soul, including his ongoing plea to return to a home that no longer exists. 

THE LAST MOON BEFORE HOME is a tender, engrossing, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes humorous, story about looking for the home we all search for, in one way or another.

About Barbara J. Dzikowski

Barbara J. Dzikowski graduated from Indiana University with a degree in philosophy, and she went on to receive a Masters in counseling. She credits her training in both of these areas as her impetus to create fiction that closely examines the human heart and its complex search for love and meaning. Her debut novel was Searching for Lincoln’s Ghost  (2011). The Moonstoners (2019) was the first in a trilogy about two families whose lives become inextricably entwined from the 1960s through the present. In this second book of the trilogy, The Last Moon Before Home (2020), Dzikowski draws on her experience as a former counselor for individuals and caregivers facing dementia to bring the next leg of the Ziemny/Trudeau families’ journey to light. After living on both U.S. coasts, she resides in her native Midwest.
