Once In A Blue Moon By Eileen Goudge

With my busy schedule, it can be very hard for me to get “me” time. Between chasing the girls, being in class, or working here at the computer, it’s always go go go around here.

Thanks to One2One Network, I had the chance to check out an amazing book that I could not put down. I made time for myself to get the chance to sit down and read Once in a Blue Moon, By Eileen Goudge. The story line just leaves you wanting to know what will happen next, and of course, some characters that you will completely be intrigued by.

Sisters Lindsay and Kerrie Ann 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
Being a former foster child, this book caught my attention. I’ve seen both sides of the foster care system and this story shows how a foster child can go both ways. Once in A Blue Moon takes readers into the world of two girls that started out in the same “world” and were then brought up in two opposite societies. Can these girls become the sisters they once were?
After reading Once in A Blue Moon, I will be looking for other books by Eileen Goudge. Her writing will leave you wanting to know more as you fall in love with each and every character.
No monetary compensation was received for this review. I received a complimentary copy of the book from One2One Network to allow myself to read and discuss my opinion on this book.
