ONCE IN A BLUE MOON
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
This is an appealing story, and there's no doubt that Goudge is an accomplished storyteller, but the element of surprise is missing. The reader can guess fairly accurately where the narrative is going, but it's still an interesting journey.
When Lindsay and Kerrie Ann's mother was sent to prison, the girls were sent to different foster homes. Thirty years later, Lindsay owns a bookstore after having been adopted by a loving couple. Kerrie Ann became a drug-addicted single mother. Newly sober, she is fighting to regain custody of her daughter. When the two sisters meet, neither is whom the other expects. But they once again become sisters of the heart. (VANGUARD, Oct., 336 pp., $24.95)
