One Chance, One Moment, By Judith Kohnen
Description: A Tribute to Barry Manilow: 40 years with Mandy Author Delivers Inspiring Debut Novel Judith Kohnen introduces her first novel, a creative inspiration of Barry Manliow’s “Mandy” – the song that skyrocketed his career in the 70s. It was first recorded as a single in October 1974, and Kohnen presents One Chance, One Moment: Book One - The Mandy Story in commemoration of the song’s 40th anniversary and in recognition of Manilow as “the man who makes a difference.” Originally written in 1986, Kohnen recalls, “I knew its title the moment I wrote the last words of the first chapter and never knew what was going to happen next.” One Chance, One Moment has had numerous revisions through the years and Kohnen gives the reason for its delay: “Divine Order, Divine Timing,” she says. “Certain things and experiences had to happen to make the book what it is today.” In One Chance, One Moment, famous pianist and singer Garry Danzlo has lost the will to live following a debilitating accident that stems from his father’s suicide. His career halted, Garry wants nothing more than solitude, but a fun-loving nurse sent to rehabilitate him enters his life and changes everything he’s ever believed in.
