Eddie Olczak, devoted husband and father, a man of unshakable faith, derives intense pleasure from the life he's built with his wife, Krystyna, their 2 daughters, and the Catholic church where he both works and worships. So when a tragic accident takes Krystyna's life, Eddie is sure his heart is broken forever. Friends and family rally around the Olczaks in their time of grief. But one woman cannot fully express her sorrow. Her name is Sister Regina, and as time passes, she comes to realize that her relationship with Eddie transcends their shared love of Krystyna and the girls. Thrilled, but frightened, Eddie and Regina look within their hearts to make some difficult choices. Download and start listening now!

    " This was a sweet story, but not one of my LaVyrle Spencer favorites. I really liked Eddie and Sister Regina. I guess the story was just a little slow paced, and it was very detailed concerning Sister Regina's life as a nun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 12/24/2013

    " This book starts out sad but the love of a child brought two people together. Paths chosen are not always carved in stone and sometimes you need to look within your heart to show you the direction for which you were truly chosen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 12/19/2013

    " I stood in line for 2 hours to have this book signed by LaVyrle - It was worth every minute. This book takes place in my home town of Browerville, MN. LaVyrle's hometown too! "

    " Great for a beach book or plane ride "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty | 11/12/2013

    " This was a sweet book and she is a good author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 10/11/2013

    " I read this with trepidation, since I knew it was LaVyrle's last book, and it's not one I've picked up to reread very often, maybe because it was her last one. But it's still a beautiful story, well written and accessible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 7/21/2013

    " I really, really loved this book. Sadly, after this Lavyrle Spencer retired. I really loved her books and wish she could write again :( "

    " A little bit of sugar is good for living "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 5/1/2013

    " This is a wonderful love story. It's about loss and about love in a small community in the 1950's. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Graf | 4/11/2013

    " Very good, sweet story. Shows how love can overcome anything man does. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lana | 3/21/2013

    " With my Catholic upbringing, I enjoyed the descriptions in this book. Again, it's mid-1950's, small town Minnesota. The people are warm and realistic. A good and clean love story. One of only about 15 books that I bought for my own collection. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Georgia | 3/8/2013

    " Spencer is a master story teller. For a pleasant read and to escape into an uplifting journey, I highly recomment this or any of the other books by LaVeryl Spencer. After a short but successful career, she retired to her quiet life in Minn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathleen | 8/18/2012

    " memories of my catholic childhood..and other reasons why i never became a nun..ha ha "

    " The book was good except, the author harps on the evil sister-in-laws weight, as if the fact she is over weight is what makes her so bitter. This is not the first book that the author has written were the antagonist is over weight and that is what makes them so mean. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn | 7/14/2010

    " my 1st spencer book .... o.k. not the greatest piece of literature but a charming story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dona | 9/13/2008

    " Light reading but don't let that fool you. Extremely emotional tale with well-develped characters. This is probably my favourite of LaVyrle Spencer's books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sharal Hunter | 6/27/2008

    " Not one of Spencer's best. Had a very hard time relating to the characters and the story's profoundly sad plot. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lori | 3/2/2008

    " Didn't care for this one at all. Lots of time and description spent on Catholic beliefs and rituals. It was tedious reading. "

    " A predictable, but okay story line "
