|Author LaVyrle Spencer|
The writing is not bad, Pages 30-31 describe some of Eddie's horrid feelings in grief, "But it wasn't all right. Krystyna was dead and it would never be all right again. ......So much easier to think of common everyday responsibilities than of this huge and stultifying thing he was being forced to accept. ...."
Page 46, Sister Regina realizes being a nun might not be right for her. " She'd thought Benedictine communal life would mean strength and support and constant peace within. A strifeless valley of serenity whose sacrifice and prayer and hard work would bring an inner happiness leaving nothing more wanting. Instead it meant silence when communication was called for, withdrawal when it was sympathy that was needed and a Litany for the Faithful Departed when it was tears that were needed."
Pages 49 and 50 describe the Polish antidote, bring food,"Where the cake came from so fast, Eddie couldn't guess but he wasn't surprised, these women thought food was the antidote to any crisis."
This tragic tale and love story continues over 331 pages. . As I commented, not my genre and not an author whom I would read again, but for very light romantic reading this might suit some. I give this 2 ** because I do not enjoy this type.
