Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Reavis ( Fire Under Heaven , under the name Cinda Richards) takes a potentially syrupy idea and gives it an emotional verisimilitude that turns her new novel into an example of delicately crafted, eminently satisfying romantic fiction. The outlines of the story are simple: two emotionally?g/careful--emotional verisimilitude above.eed//we don't need emotional/it's clear with needy/pk/ needy people, nursing painful losses, are brought together through the workings of destiny and the guileless machinations of a child who loves them both. Within this familiar territory Reavis works magic by endowing Catherine and Joe with rich inner worlds, believableused above and below exterior is this better?pk lives--including financial and family problems--and enough of a sense of the marvelous to fall in love despite the difficulties they face. Reavis also possesses a gentle sense of the absurd: a key scene, for example, turns upon the appearance of a Volkswagen filled with very pregnant high school girls who take it upon themselves to prod their teacher's reluctant beau toward the altar.

    I loved this book--read it when it first came out--for its realistic and very touching story, which can only be achieved with depth of character. Reavis's characters come alive on the page.

    I couldn't put this novel down until I finished the book. The story grips the reader from the start and doesn't let go. Ms Reavis has written a story of heartache and new love. I cheered for Pat ( friend fighting cancer) and wanted to hug Fritz and Charlie. Della is true to her teenage years and was selfish, thoughtless and self centered . Joe and Catherine have been through difficult times. And now have found each other because of a gnome that Joe sold and Catherine bought. I cried and laughed out loud for them . I don't want to give away the whole story.. read it and enjoy.

    5 STARS Well I laughed,cried and smile through the book. Thier are some sex scenes & swearwords in the book so beware. Catherine Holben saw gnome in the front of a window at a store by her bus stop. She ended up buying it. The store owner asked if she could give the man who had to sell them her address. He did not want to part with them but he needed the money. Catherine agreed. Catherine is a nurse who is teaching pregnant girls how to take care of thier baby now and when they came in the future. Catherine husband divorced her because he wanted children and she could not have them. Her husband John still wanted them to be friends. Even invited her to his wedding. While she was yelling at her ex-husband for leaving her because he wanted children. A man and his little girl were outside her apartment and heard some of the fight. The man turned to the little girl and said lets go. He told her now was not a good time to talk to Ms. Holben. The little girl wanted just to give her his business card. He said no. The man dropped his daughter off at home and went back to work. Fritz the little girl waited for her Joe to leave. She then went and got on a bus a stop away. Then she rode another bus and got off at the apartment building. Fritz went up and knocked on the door. She handed the business card to the lady. Catherine invited her in. She was cold and wet, so Catherine put the afgan around her and let her the see the humble figurine that she had named. Finally Fritz gave in and called her brother but her dad Joe was home. Joe wife died when Fritz was just 2.Fritz was the youngest of three at 7. Della the oldest 16 Charlie at 15. Right now his business of construction was slow right now. Fritz called Joe by his first name a while back he doesn't know why she did. Fritz told Catherine all about her and her family. That she called her dad Joe so he would not die on her. Fritz tried not to be any trouble. She loved the figurine and had voted to sell them when they had a family meeting. Joe could not believe that they meant so much to Fritz but he really did not have a choice at the time. He agreed that Fritz could come and visit the gnomes when Catherine invited the little girl. Fritz is a cutie. Della is a spoiled brat. Charlie is usually in his own world. Sasha the 13 year old who is one of the pregnant girls in Catherine class. You just want to hug her. I liked the story and cared about the thier world and what happens to them. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley. 05/07/2012 PUB Bell Bridge Books
