Excellent. Read it! I couldn't put it down. It's late, I will write more later, but the blending of two generations and two stories was well-done.
I have mixed feelings about this book. It was definitely an interesting plot, but I felt it moved too fast in places, for the sakes of both realism and my personal taste. I didn't get to know the characters as well as i would've liked. Also - and this might sound kind of ridiculous since one of the main characters is studying to be a priest - but the God-related aspect of the story wasn't as deep as I'd hoped for. There are a few good lessons in here if you catch them, though: a shout-out for ab ...more
This book was very predictable from the beginning. That being said, it was a cute story and I enjoyed the journey it took me on.

enigszins voorspelbaar verhaal dat wel makkelijk wegleest.
This book was very good. Maybe not quite as good as other books by this author. But I like how Paul McCusker writes very believably. He writes very authentic characters, and is not afraid to get a little gritty sometimes.

The story is about misunderstanding, bitterness, and forgiveness.
Very good.
It took me quite awhile to read this one. It's okay enough. Some parts of the story were particularly contrived, enough so to be humorous. It was very predictable. I liked the message on forgiveness. My favorite character: Father Gilbert.
Great love story!
