Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows that feisty, sensual Gerry Fitzgerald wasn't always so outspoken. 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.

At the same time, Gerry's feelings for her lover, Aubrey, grow more complex and consuming. Suddenly their relationship has begun to crack open both their cautious hearts.

Critic Reviews

"Along the way to a traditional happy ending, Goudge packs in plenty of drama and suspense." ( Publishers Weekly)

Boring

This book was a real disappointment. I looked forward to the time when the priest was expelled from church. It never happened. I also look forward to Claire and Matt's future. it was never told.
