Said it before and I'll say it again - audio book readers simply don't get any better than Blair Brown. Then give her an emotionally charged story by bestselling author Luanne Rice, and listeners are treated to both a touching story and a most pleasurable voice performance. It's hard to make a life for yourself when your husband is in prison but Honor Sullivan has managed to do it. She teaches painting at a convent, Star of the Sea Academy, in Connecticut. She lives with her three daughters, Regis, Agnes and Cecilia. It has been 11 years since their family was broken when husband and father, John, was sent to prison. A man was dead, yes, but John claimed he was defending his daughter from rape. Nonetheless, his absence has left indelible scars on those he loves the most. Honor doesn't know whether or not she can forgive him for what he has done, one daughter really doesn't remember him, another daughter harbors ill feelings for what she considers to have been her father's abandonment, and the third, Regis, well, she suddenly announces that she plans to be married. John has been released from prison but has been reluctant to approach his family, not knowing what his reception might be or whether or not they are better off without him. He turns to his sister, Mother Superior Bernadette Ignatius, for solace and advice. Once again, author Rice explores the labyrinth of human emotions and raises the question of whether or not love can really conquer all. - Gail CookeWas this review helpful?
