Book Description

Marcia Gardinier is leaving Wyoming to begin nurses’ training in Colorado. She is eager to escape an impoverished and chaotic home, an unstable and juvenile mother, and a distant but controlling father. Her small suitcase is light on clothes but filled with painful memories.

Much to her father’s dismay, Marcia has chosen to attend St. Joseph’s, a Catholic school of nursing in Denver. Her decision leaves her with no financial support from her father and a haphazard approach to paying for an education.

At St. Joseph’s, Marcia begins to form enduring friendships and to search for fulfillment of her heart’s strongest hunger, a true and lasting love. But the past, both remote and near, continues to bedevil her and may cause her to lose a young physician to whom she is attracted.

Written in the tradition of the classic romance novel, this Suitcase Tale is a story of betrayal and striving against seemingly overwhelming obstacles; a story of healing, hope, and love.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not often these days can one find a book that reads like an old time foul language, violence or sex. This book is sweet with just a bit of romance. This will make a very nice gift for any mom or grandma. Looking forward to reading the second book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging read April 8, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found myself enjoying this little read, even though I'm not much of a fiction fan. It was a nice mixture of tough childhood, religious conviction, and fun. I fell in love with Marcia's adventures. Great ending as well.
