Overview

Norah Barclay finally found love in old age, only to lose it to the inevitability of death. Even as she railed at God, she knew her own choices had led her down the path which led to her sitting by the deathbed of Egan Corey as he drew his last breath. But she is not alone, even in the stillness of the night. Her grief is shared by One who can see the whole of the fabric of our lives, who decides, "...this time, for these two..." Norah has a chance to set all to rights. Can she avoid the tangled web that trapped her in a spinster's loneliness and Egan in a forced marriage?

Editorial Reviews

J. Izatt
This book twisted me between sorrow and joy, wrenching everything out of me, and daring me to put into words for a review. All too human, Manning's characters each contend with their own unique dramas, selfish in their own desires. She demonstrates a remarkable strength in rendering emotion for both her characters and her readers. I do not want to neglect her descriptive abilities, but they fade, as any good background should, and merely highlight and direct with subtlety.

Anne Manning does a wonderful job of making Norah wise beyond her years and portraying how one might react to such a second chance. Manning also creates doubt about Norah's future, however destined it may be, with Egan. Ripples certainly makes the reader wonder exactly how much one single choice affects an entire lifetime.
