INTRODUCTION
(From Amazon)
 An inspiration of Barry Manilow's 70s hit song MANDY and in commemoration of its 40th anniversary, Judith Kohnen presents her fictional account of the story behind the song...

Renowned singer/musician Garry Danzlo has decided to live a life of seclusion after a debilitating accident destroys his musical career. Guilt-ridden and stubborn, he wants no part of the holistic nurse his sister has hired to rehabilitate him. He’s determined to get rid of her; she’s determined to stay.

Spunky, fun-loving Amanda Fields, widowed after a loveless marriage, is on a mission for love. More than anything in the world, she wants to adopt an eight-year-old, wheelchair-bound boy named Robbie. When her chance arrives that will provide her with sufficient funds for the adoption, there’s nothing to stop her from accomplishing the temporary job in Colorado. But what she has to contend with is far more than just a difficult patient. Unexpected obstacles are suddenly out of her control. The least of her worries is falling for yet another man who doesn’t love her back.

"One Chance, One Moment" is a humorous, surprising and deeply emotional story of love found by two special people – love built on chances one must sometimes take, but sometimes give as well. Each moment becomes nourished by the faith of one woman, and eventually, by the dream of one man.

Intriguing, fun, hope-filled, and bubbling with love, adventure and suspense, the novel explores:
• How our choices can be guided by intuition
• How love goes far deeper than skin
• The various facets of the heart and how we observe them in life
• The importance of forgiveness to find true peace within
• How spirituality and intuitive development can shape our relationships
• How we are sometimes faced with “one chance, one moment” opportunities in life.

NOTE: When purchasing One Chance, One Moment, 20% of proceeds will be donated to charity - THE MANILOW MUSIC PROJECT - a program that tends to the needs of public schools and their severely depleted music programs.

 The book included several different story lines. It was a good love story with characters that let you not really knowing if you loved or hated them. While reading you are kept on the edge of your chair trying not to miss anything. The reader will find sadness, maybe a small smile on your face, some things that happened edged on  criminal.I found it amazing how devious a person can be such a Daphne and how caring a person can be such as Amanda. Daphne never had to make amends for what she did. She endured ridicule and cruel treatment from Garry, who was nothing more than bitter.  There were twists and turns in the story that kept the reader's attention.  Amanda was somewhat weak. She  needed to stand forthright and strong, instead she mainly resorted to crying.  Perhaps she will become more self worthy and strong in Book Two.  There are a lot of things that I want to see resolved.  Things at time were left hanging. What will happen to Amanda's marriage? Will Amanda be held accountable for the gambling debts? The main thing, will the differences in religion and faith come to the front?
 
I was given a complimentary copy of ONE CHANCE, ONE MOMENT from the author, Judith Kohnen for my view of the book.
 
I would give this book 4 RIBBONS.
