Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The author of "Beginner's Luck" returns with a romantic comedy about an aging, terminally ill Scotsman and a feisty nun.

Review:

"The unlikely piles upon the unconvincing....If readers can suspend their disbelief — which might be hard — they'll find Pederson's latest offers many funny, tender and bittersweet moments." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"This book will make you laugh and cry and like a good friend; you'll be happy to have made its acquaintance." Lorna Landvik, author of Angry Housewives Eating Bons Bons

Review:

"Laura Pedersen's wry, bittersweet story charts the unlikely romance between a dying yet still vibrant man and a nun whose faith has abandoned her. While much is lost in this gentle tale, much is gained too, and by the novel's end, the characters are granted the kind of wisdom and acceptance for which we all continue to long." Yona McDonough, author of The Four Temperaments
