  Blue Moons and Lavender Suns, Alaska Science Forum
The blue light is thus scattered more than red, and we see the scattered light of the sky as blue and the sun as reddish (especially when it is low in the sky and must pass through a lot of air to reach our eyes).
Blue eyes, some blue feathers, and the bluish color of the veins in your skin are all due to Rayleigh scattering.
Blue suns and moons and pinkish skies occur when there are particles in the air whose size is just a little larger than the wavelength of light.

 Guardian | Lavender Blue
Flashbacks to when the twins were young are well-handled, with a pair of happy, giggling young girls running about the stage, and through the lavender fields that surround it, visible only to Lily and, occasionally, her mother.
Lily's torment, expressed by her heavy drinking and reliance on antidepressants, never feels real, and there are too many moments of flat, unconvincing dialogue (such as when Lily wheels out that cliche of inner torment: "I want the noise to stop.")
The set doesn't help matters, with its giant dried flower arrangements meant to suggest lavender fields, and a surreal family dining table, diagonally stretching to the floor across the stage.

 Road to Romance -- LAVENDER BLUE by Sandra Heath   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Extraordinary events soon become the norm, with voices being heard where there’s nobody, the moon casting blue luminescence, the haunting ‘Lavender Blue’ song which seems to hold a mystifying sway over both Anthea and Corinna, persons who fly, an inquisitive hare, unseasonal thunder and whatnot.
The crisis is rapidly approaching, but Anthea has no idea who poses the danger, or why, but she knows its coming and she also knows she may not be able to stop it.
The plot is really unusual, as is the storyline, and it beautifully encompasses a mystery within a romance and there are plenty of agonizingly suspenseful moments which greatly increase the interest factor in the book.
