Life has been difficult for
Christine Monroe and she has had to live on the street with
no food or money. But her future takes a turn for the better
one day when she walks into a diner to look for employment
and bumps into Kent Peterson.
Kent Peterson, a successful doctor
is enthralled with Christine the moment he sees her. He is
able to see past her worn clothes and senses that she is a
good person even when everyone else mistreats her. Sally,
Kent's daughter is quickly taken by Christine and hopes that
her prayers have finally been answered and she will finally
get a new mommy.
Shannon Rouchelle warms your heart
with Star Gazer. This brief story makes you
realize that not everyone who is homeless necessarily chose
that life. Christine is a likeable character but with a very
low self-esteem. Kent is patient with her and quickly finds
himself falling in love. It was good to see the characters
grow from the obstacles that were thrown their way. Although
I would have like to have seen different facets to Kent
Peterson, I found Star Gazer to be charming.
