Once In A Blue Moon by Eileen Goudge Book Review

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

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.

Once In A Blue Moon
by Eileen Goudge is typically not my favored genre; but I'm always willing to give anything a chance.

And I was pleasantly surprised.

Although I don't have a sister, I've known many who do. I've frequently witnessed first hand the bonds of sisterly love.

Once more I was invited into a world inhabited only by those with sisters, albeit by way of fiction, and was touched by such a deep-rooted relationship; even when time and lifestyles create a huge barrier.

Once In A Blue Moon is such a touching story. Very well-written, an easy-flowing writing style makes reading this fictional tale enjoyable and difficult to put down.

Irregardless of your preferred genre, I recommend adding Once In A Blue Moon by Eileen Goudge to your reading list; which is set to release on October 6, 2009.
