Jo Goodman is truly gifted. I LOVE her heroines -- they're strong, often outspoken, intelligent, independent, capable and competent. I'm a die-hard fan of contemporary romance but Ms. Goodman has turned me into a lover of historicals. If you start the series, I promise you won't rest until you've read the first four.

This was a great read. Although my favorite was Wild Sweet Ectasy (the first in the series), this tied up the loose ends perfectly. I felt Mary needed a special person in her life and Ryder fit the bill. A great romance and storyline between the two. It's hard to beat Jo Goodman's writing.

I started this series backwards, by reading this book first. Wild Sweet Extacy is the first book and you should start there. I'm reviewing this one because I loved this most most. What kind of man would cause a nun to turn her back on the cloth?? I call that some kind of man.

A Wonderful Ending to a Marvelous Series by Jo Goodman 19 April 2014
By JJares - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jo Goodman (author) indicated that she wrote this last installment of the Dennehy Sisters because readers begged her to write it. It came four years after the previous story. It calls for Sister Mary Francis Dennehy, after considerable soul-searching and prayer, to leave the convent.

Herein lies my only disappointment in this incredibly good book, the author doesn't understand what a "cloistered nun" means. Cloistered sisters stay in their nunnery and pray for the world; they do not interact with the world on a daily basis.

In previous books, Sister Mary Frances was a cloistered nun; which begs the question, "How was she with her family so much of the time? This book, the author indicates that Sister Mary Francis had been working in a hospital. Hmmmm.

The rest of the book is beyond wonderful! The man Mary Frances meets early in the book and meets again, under solemn circumstances, is all one could want for in a person to match her. Ryder McKay has been sentenced to hang for a crime he didn't commit.

All of the sisters and brothers-in-law (along with the Mary's' parents) partake in this story. This book provided the closure that the story about Skye, ALWAYS IN MY DREAMS, did not. I absolutely loved the book and the series!

Big disappointment! 22 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I love Jo Goodman's books. Her steadfast heart/reckless heart triology is absolutely the best of the best. Perhaps I expected too much. At any rate this wasn't vintage Goodman. The characters
of "mary" and "ryder" are likeable enough as are the surrounding characters but the story line is dull and way over the top in descriptiveness. There's no reason for Ryder's behaviour (keeping mary in a cave/ marrying her, etc.......). I think it was just a quick attempt to finish the series off. The writer herself says she hadn't planned on a story about this sister. Hope you enjoy it more than I did.......
