Romance Reading Book Challenge 2014: A book without a happy ever after
Once upon a time, Nora Sutherlin was just Eleanor Schreiber, daughter of a wannabe-nun and crook with mob ties. At fifteen years old, all her mother wants is a daughter who loves God, goes to Church, respects her priest and even her mother a little. Instead, she gets Eleanor whose quick brain and fast-talking often gets her into trouble – as much trouble as the clever hands that know how to hotwire luxury cars before you can say five Hail Mary’s. It is these illegal activities that get Eleanor arrested. With the help of her priest, she escapes juvie by the skin of her teeth and instead lands community service under the supervision of Father Stearns – or to Eleanor, Søren.
The first time Eleanor lands her eyes on Søren, she firstly can’t believe that such beauty is wasted on a lifetime of celibacy and secondly, she falls irrevocably in love. This enchanting love story between a fifteen-year-old delinquent and a twenty-nine-year-old celibate priest is Wakefield, Connecticut’s biggest secret, with The Saint spanning the first five years of their unusual relationship.
