Beneath the Velvet Blue Moon
By Candace Gold
Reviewed by Kenda Montgomery Official Reviewer for The Mystic Castle
Some things are just meant to be, while others rush through our lives with
the bittersweet longing of youth. At age nineteen, Nadine Stone thought
her summer fling with Michael Greene was meant to last a lifetime, the
kind of instant love that is sure and solid. When family tragedy strikes, she
is torn from the world she so dearly loved and loses contact with the boy
that she lost her heart to. She wanders through life for many years,
wondering if the only choice she has left is to settle for the next best thing.
Though she's come to love her life, there's something missing and it takes
her coming full circle under a blue moon to find what her heart has been
crying out for.
This was a riveting story from start to finish-then I went back and read it
again! Author Gold deftly uses first point of view to delve deep into our
heroine, connecting the reader in way that nb other point of view allows.
We are literally walking every step ofNadine'_ emotions and inner turmoil,
a very interesting way to connect and look at the story. Gold's subtle wit
and poignant writing is not to be missed. Look for her story in the
anthology "Blue Moon Enchantment': and be sure to pick up the first in the
series, "Blue Moon Mag:ic" as well. Bravo. Ms. Gold. for a touching and
TITLE: Blue Moon Enchantment
***** This is the second book in the Blue Moon anthology series. The first,
titled "Blue Moon Magic", was released only a few months ago and is still
selling wildly. I predict that this companion book will do as well. Short
stories are even harder to write than full length novels and this anthology
has FIFTEEN magical tales by various authors. If you want some sweet
dreams, read one of two of these stories just before bed. Terrific! *****
