As a young novitiate, Gerry became pregnant, fleeing the altar just as she was about to take her vows and never breathing a word about why. Twenty-eight years later the child she gave up for adoption has returned, a grown woman looking for answers. Now Gerry must learn how to defuse the years of guilt, shame, and bitterness that divide her from her daughter.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A refreshingly unsentimental take on how an adopted child adjusts to newfound family and vice versa…Along the way to a traditional happy ending, Goudge packs in plenty of drama and suspense as she continues to flesh out the much-beloved residents of Carson Springs.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Goudge’s story tells of relationships and love, families lost and found…[Marshall] accurately portrays petulant teens, adoring sons, and the secret world of nuns and priests.”

    AudioFile

  • “Goudge sensitively touches on themes of letting go and holding back, ones that many mothers will recognize…Goudge’s novel features beguiling characters, lush locations, and a timely focus on the consequences of a priest’s breaking his vows and harming a parishioner. Great summertime beach reading both for readers new to Carson Springs and those eager for more tales of its romantic residents.”

    Booklist

  • “Familiar characters gather…Mind candy with just the touch of tartness to make it a comfort read.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " It's a little steamy, so if this offends you, skip it.

    It's a good book, a nice read that you don't have to think about. It was a good story and I liked the ending. A little predictable, but still a nice story to tuck into after a long day. "
