What Matters Most

A Novel

This book is a love story that covers 2 separate generations. This is not realized until you get further along in the story. First you have James and Kathleen who in essence have grown up together. In the process they start the journey to young love, only for the journey to be interrupted, momentarily, and what obstacles they overcome to get back the love they had lost.

It also centers around the story of Bernadette and Tom. The sacrifices they made to insure that their child would have the opportunities that they never had. As well as their lifelong love, and how it survives over all the choices they made throughout their life.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories of love lost and found. As well as enduring love.

Book Blurb for What Matters Most

New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice works her singular magic in this deeply felt novel about two unforgettable couples, linked by a shared history, separated by decisions made long ago.
What if you could relive one time in your life? What would you choose if you could make one thing right? For Bernadette and Tom, it is a return to their roots in Ireland and a love that broke every rule and could have withstood any consequence-but the one that broke their hearts. For James and Kathleen, whose indelible bond was forged in a Dublin orphanage before one was adopted and carried across the sea to America, it is a reunion they've dreamed of all their young lives, even if it defies reason. From the Emerald Isle to the Connecticut shore, four lives ÿare about to come together in a confrontation that will challenge each of them to leave behind the past and all they once thought was important, and to embrace at last what matters most.
