What would be on your “Bucket List”? Never in her wildest dreams did Clara Black imagine she’d fly to Vegas just to eat at America’s biggest buffet or that she’d be digging holes in her mother’s backyard to unearth her brother’s screechy plastic recorder. But if that’s what it takes to get past the car accident that changed her life...she’ll do what she must.
Eight months after losing her fiancé just before their wedding, Clara still can’t seem to escape her fog of sorrow. On a visit to her childhood home, she encounters her fifth-grade time capsule and a very special bucket list written by her 10-year-old self. When she impulsively fulfills one item, Clara finds that revisiting the woman she thought she’d become may just be her way out from grief and back to life. With Milk Dud the one-ear wonder dog, her zany but loving family, and an unexpected someone from her past by her side, Clara discovers that sometimes life’s unplanned moments are the sweetest, and sometimes the only bridge to your future is your past.
At once poignant and life-affirming, ONCE A UPON A LIST by Robin Gold (Avon Impulse; On-Sale: 5/8/2012; e-ISBN: 9780062193711; Price: $3.99) is a fireside read for fans of both romance and women’s fiction.
Library Journal calls the book, “Absolutely charming and punctuated with humor at just the right moments, this book will have readers pulling for the sympathetic Clara as she attempts to triumph in the midst of unbearable loss. This light contemporary will satisfy fans of Robyn Carr and Debbie Macomber.”
And TheRomanceReviews.com calls the book “heart-warming” and says, “ONCE UPON A LIST is a great and entertaining read, both thought-provoking and life-affirming.”
Robin Gold is the author of The Perfectly True Tales of a Perfect Size 12. She resides near Chicago with her husband Greg, who she finally found and was well worth the wait, their baby Archie, eleven bicycles, and a bunch of boxes in the basement that will probably never get unpacked. Odds are high that she has a Cheerio stuck somewhere on her body and doesn’t know it.
