Can love survive a shattering loss? A grief-stricken widower learns to open his heart again in this touching and emotionally charged novel…

 

Late summer, Browerville, Minnesota, 1950: Life is just about perfect for Eddie Olczak. A devoted husband and father, a man of unshakable faith, he derives intense pleasure from the life he’s built with his beloved wife, Krystyna, and their two daughters, and from his work as dedicated handyman for St. Joseph’s, the Catholic church that is the cornerstone of Browerville. But when a tragic accident cuts Krystyna’s life short, Eddie is sure his heart is broken forever.

 

As friends and relatives rally around the family in the dark days that follow, there is one person who is unable to express what the loss of Krystyna means to her. Sister Regina, the girls’ teacher at St. Joseph’s school, has always felt a special affinity for the family. Yet her religious vows prevent her from becoming too close to them, even in their time of need. Now, the strict rules of the Benedictine sisterhood, which once gave her life a sense of meaning, chafe at her.

 

As Sister Regina and Eddie Olczak continue to cross paths, they realize there is something between them—a connection that somehow goes beyond their shared love of Krystyna and the girls. Thrilled—and secretly frightened—they both must summon the courage to look within their hearts and make their own choices.

I first borrowed this book from the Library many years ago, and I'm very happy to have found it again to add to my personal collection of favorites. Though it's very well written and engaging, for me this book wasn't so much about the story or the plot line as it was an insightful masterpiece of imagery. The author somehow managed to perfectly convey an era long gone, so I wished I could get my kids to read it, that they might understand how different "my" world was from the one they know. It's beautiful and tender and sweet and rich. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Falling in love with someone when it's against the rules would be so very hard and when you're a nun.......well I'm sure it is heart wrenching.....the questions that it would raise in your beliefs. Jean (sister Regina) and Eddie handle it in a totally worthy way. To lose your wife in a horrific accident, but then find love again...
What I liked too was the moment that Eddie and Sister Regina felt blessed in their mutual love from Jesus and Katriyna. Read this book I'm sure you will not be disappointed.

LaVryle Spencer is one of my favorite authors, but this book is probably the worst of her work. The story is contrived, neatly packed with weak writing and very little storyline. In 1950, a nun who leaves the order to date a man wouldve caused more of a scandal. Everyone is the book seems ok with this prospect, including the religious figures in the story. The nun's mother and grandmother are the most "scandalized." However, their opinions become muddled quickly and everyone wants to give the couple "a chance." Nice, neat package. My favorite continues to be Morning Glory. Sorry LaVyle.

This was one of my favorite novels over 15 years ago. My paperback version fell apart so I bought the Kindle version and re-read the book again. I just loved it. It is a real tear jerker so have lots of tissue.

LaVyrle is one of my favorite authors. In "Then Came Heaven," her last book, she doesn't disappoint. It's the simple story of a janitor at a Catholic Church school who loses his wife in an accident, and a nun and teacher, who finds herself doubting her religion. Eddie's two little girls and a large close family add to the charm and plot of the romance.

Mostly clean, definitely sweet love story about loss and finding love after that loss. This has a twist to the usual formula with the female love interest being a nun, so that part was unique. 2 PG 13 sex-scenes and some sadness involved with a tragic accident and loss of a young mother. Nice read for romantic novel lovers!

The only bad part of this book is the author's note at the end of the book, thanking her readers for all the following. She announced this was to be the last book she would write, retiring to enjoy life after authoring.
This is just a sweet and good book, a reminder of an era gone by, when people still had sensibilities, when there was no Internet, when life was handled without cell phones and texting--and when religion was a very serious part of life.

This gentle story of a recent widower, a devout Catholic, and the nun at his church who is questioning her vocation could be cloying and over the top. But it is not. It is written with such love, and such respect, that it is peaceful to read. The subject matter could be offensive to some readers, but I do not see how. The nun who is questioning her vows is so good, so deeply troubled by the thoughts she cannot pray away, that it is impossible not to be in her corner. Ditto the man whose life is shattered by the untimely loss of his young wife, as he struggles to come to grips with his still alive virility and his desire to be a good man and a good father.

This book takes place in the time before Vatican II, when life could be very rigid for devout Catholics, so the anguish these two protagonists feel is very real and very palpable.

I had never read LaVyrie Spencer before, and I am so glad that this is the book I chose.
