As part of the One to One Network, I was sent Eileen Goudge’s newest book, Once in a Blue Moon, to read and share my thoughts with my readers. This was such a captivating book, I couldn’t put it down and had it read in just two days. If I read a book quickly, I know it is one I love because I just can’t read books I’m not interested in.
Some of you may know Eileen Goudge from previous novels such as Woman in Red and three other New York Times best sellers. After finishing, Once in a Blue Moon, I now want to read the rest of the Goudge’s book especially if they as honest as this Once in a Blue Moon.
Two sisters, separated at a early age, who experienced a hard life growing up but at least they had each other are reunited after almost thirty years. These conditions under which they are reunited are less than ideal. Kerri Ann and Lindsay are like oil and water and raised with completely polar experiences.
Kerri Ann seeks out her sister as learning of her existence because as a former drug addict, she has lost custody of the light of her life her daughter, Bella. Lindsay in intangled in a court battle of her own as she tries to save the home she grew up in with her adopted parents from being turned into a lavish resort.
While the reunion was not the one either imagined, each sister grows in their way throughout the book. With the help of Miss Honi, the story has humor interwined as well. In the end, you will see that the bond of blood is strong despite the sisters’ differences.
