This is a very uniquely written and interesting book. It is a blend of history and fiction that keeps you wondering if it is indeed real. I really enjoyed it. The story flows easily and keeps you engaged.
This was a book that I really enjoyed. While it was a bit of a love story, I thought it was also a very interesting look into both the Catholic Church as well as the Jewish faith. I thought even though the book was written some time ago, it worked into the fabric of the story the debate about priests getting married, about the struggles we all have with challenging things that we have grown up with and been taught from the very beginning. It also is a testament to redemption, to finding your way and to doing what your heart tells you.
This is the second time that I have "read" this book. I really liked it, which is probably why I have read it twice. It is funny, heart rending and uplifting all at once. Although the author tends to whine a bit at times, this is a wonderful book.
I love Debbie Macomber's books. While they can be kind of "chick" like with romance and lost love, they are also touching in that they seem to reflect real emotions that touch the heart. I have read just about everything of hers and will continue to do so.
I love the Blossom Street series. Debbie Macomber has a way of writing that just feels good, even if the characters are going through difficult times. She writes in such a way that you feel like you are in the middle of the story, that you are part of the community. I really enjoy these books.
I felt like the book started in the middle. There was no preface, it just jumped into the middle of the story. That trend continued throughout the book to me- I felt lost. Did not even finish the whole thing.
