Once and Forever by M.S. Kaye @MSKosciuszko #Contemporary #Christmas

The Plot:

Eden, a nun, is constantly struggling against her dark past of living on the streets, and her attraction to Trace, an ex-convict farm worker. After a twelve-year separation, Eden is finally reunited with her brother, Thomas, but why hadn’t she reached out to him in all those years? As Eden and Trace grow closer, confessing their pasts to each other, will they be able to resist getting too close?

About the Author:

M.S. Kaye has multiple published books and awards under her Black Belt. A transplant from Ohio, she resides with her husband Corey in Jacksonville, FL, where she does her best not to melt in the sun. Find suspense and the unusual at


As her biography states, M.S. Kaye writes books that are unusual. Her books are also compelling with complicated characters you care about, and they’re pretty much guaranteed to make you cry. Father Thomas teaches at a seminary near Baltimore and mentored both Jonathan and Aiden in the books Once and Once and Again. He never mentioned he had a much-younger sister, partly because he hadn’t heard from her in several years.

Eden’s father and brother disapproved of her boyfriend, so she left home with him. And when she realized just how abusive he was, she left him and lived on the streets—doing whatever it took to survive and fight off the men who thought a lone girl was fair prey. Eventually she finds herself in a small town fighting off two men in an alley, losing consciousness, and waking up in a convent where she finally stays. All’s well, except for one thing. Eden is attracted to a farm worker/handyman. She suspects there’s much more to him than meets the eye. And her life gets even more complicated when her brother, Father Thomas, shows up in town with his friends, Jonathan and Aiden.

As I’ve said, the characters are compelling, the pacing is good, and you’ll probably read this novella in one sitting. Have the tissues ready.
