TASTE OF HONEY by EILEEN GOUDGE
A season has passed in Carson Springs since Stranger in
Paradise. And with a baby on the way, Samantha Kiley
and Ian Carpenter will soon be loving parents. But in
Taste of Honey it is Sam's best friend Gerry whose
head and heart are put to the test when she is forced to
face the secret she has kept for almost thirty years.
Everyone knows that feisty, sensual Gerry Fitzgerald
wasn't always so outspoken. As a young, impressionable
novitiate, Gerry became pregnant. She fled the altar just
as she was about to take her vows to become a nun and
never breathed a word about why. Twenty-eight years later
the child she gave up for adoption has come back into her
life, a grown woman looking for answers. For Gerry, the
question is how to defuse the years of guilt, shame, and
bitterness that divide her from her daughter, how to
create and nurture a bond as fragile as a cobweb. As Gerry
opens the emotional floodgates she also unexpectedly finds
that her feelings for her lover, symphony conductor Aubrey
Roellinger, grow more complex and consuming. No longer
only a series of satisfying trysts with manageable
emotional boundaries, their relationship has begun to
crack open both their cautious hearts.
Compulsively readable, Taste of Honey brings fans back to
the idyllic California valley with characters who take on
new dimensions as their secrets emerge and their lives and
loves progress. Irresistible and romantic, Eileen Goudge's
latest Carson Springs novel is not to be missed.
