Taste of HoneyA divorced woman revisits a life-changing decision and confronts her church in this novel by the New York Times–bestselling author of Stranger in Paradise.
Gerry Fitzgerald kneels before the altar, moments away from the most important decision of her life. She is about to take her vows in the sisterhood of God, and yet she is not at peace. Anything but. Doubt fills her heart and she is torn with guilt. She found illicit passion in the arms of Father Jim, and now she is pregnant with the baby they have conceived. Is she ready to give it up? When it is her turn to speak, she runs. She has the child but gives her up for adoption, and thirty years later begins to question her decision. A reunion with her long-lost daughter reopens old wounds, and she begins to consider confronting Father Jim about his baby. Once Gerry ran from the church; this time the church will fight back. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Eileen Goudge including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
Taste of Honey is the 2nd book in the Carson Springs Novels, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
