About Once in A Blue Moon
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 family.
In My Opinion:
Once in a Blue Moon is a great book that will keep you wanting more. Let’s just say you better make sure your kids are tended to before you pick up this novel. This is the first of Eileen’s work I have been introduced to and her writing skills certainly make me intrigued to want to purchase another one of her books.
Once in a Blue Moon reads well and kept me wanting more. With each page turn and new chapter I found myself engaged within a world I’ve never been a part of but enjoyed reading about!
