Growing up dirt poor in a Kentucky coal mining camp in the 1940’s has made Glenda Mooney hungry for everything that life has to offer. She discovers early on the two vital forces that will sustain her throughout her life: music – in the sweet harmonies of gospel and bluegrass – and love – in the arms of a preacher’s daughter. This ill-fated romance and the resultant broken heart increases Glenda’s devotion to music, and, armed with just raw talent and wide-eyed wonder, the young singer sets out to conquer the world.
Deeply moving and joyously romantic, Phases of the Moon chronicles the extraordinary life of an unforgettable woman. A life lived with strength, humor, and passion… through faithless love and heart-wrenching tragedy… from the depths of despair to the heights of Nashville stardom… and beyond.
