A Book Review: "Once in a Blue Moon"



I had the opportunely to review "Once in a Blue Moon" by Eileen Goudge. This is the first time for me reading anything by Eileen. I have to admit, I have her past books now on my "To read" list.

I really enjoyed her writing style. She writes with such a easy flow that you have a hard time deciding where to stop for the night. LOL

Let me tell you a little bit of the storyline.

Lindsay and Kerrie Ann are sisters who have known hardship from an early age. Without guidance from their neglectful mother, their only aid came from an unlikely source, a retired exotic dancer by the name of Miss Honi Love. When the girls’ mother was sent to prison, Miss Honi tried unsuccessfully to save them from being separated and sent into foster care.

Thirty years later, Lindsay is still trying to reconnect with her sister. The owner of a bookstore in the sleepy California seaside town of Blue Moon Bay, she was lucky enough to have been adopted by a loving couple. Unbeknownst to her, Kerrie Ann has suffered a very different life. Bounced from one foster home to the next, she ran away as a teenager before becoming a drug-addicted single mother. Now, newly sober, Kerrie Ann is fighting to regain custody of the little girl who was taken from her.

Neither sister’s expectations are met when they’re finally reunited. But as the two sisters engage in the fiercest battles of their lives, they are at last drawn together despite their differences, restoring belief in the unshakable bond of family.


You see why it was hard to put down?!

Some of Eileen Goudge's other books are:
The Diary, Domestic Affairs, Woman in Red, One Last Dance, Garden of Lies, and Thorns of Truth

I am looking forward to reading Eileen Goudge's other books.

If you want to buy this book, I saw that Amazon has it for $16.47 right now. It is only available in hardback.

I want to thank One2One Network for giving me the opportunity to read this book!
