This sequel to Goodbye Junie Moon begins where she left off, in Washington, after testifying in Senate Hearings. She has sacrificed her business, and put herself at risk, by succumbing to her conscience and becoming a whistle-blower.
In Vietnam she saw so much death and so many devastated lives, that her one goal now is to save a life by adopting one of the many pitiful orphans she had seen living on the streets. This seems impossible. After all, she is not the usual PTA candidate.
A divorced, ex-stripper, suffering PTSD from the Vietnam War has little chance of meeting the adoptive parents stringent guidelines. And even in the 1970’s, such overseas adoptions were expensive. Even worse, she would need to be married. She had tried that once – briefly, and vowed she would never marry again. So with no husband, no money, and a lifestyle best suited to the future TV series, Sex and The City, what hope did she have?
June Collins, co- author of The Khaki Mafia and author of Goodbye Junie Moon, has lived an almost unbelievable life. She has been a farmer, dancer, rock group booking agent, nightclub owner, whistle blower, author, TV host, commercial King Crab fisherman in Alaska’s Bering Sea and lastly, mother to six adopted children from four countries. She travels slightly less now and writes on a mountain top in Queensland, Australia. When not traveling or writing, she can be found feeding wild parrots, chasing garden-destroying turkeys or taming wallabies. In all her books, she challenges women to step out of their comfort zones and suck every drop of juice from life.
