Michelle "Mickey" Stewart, a skilled surgeon loses her partner to cancer and is haunted by the fact that she did not recognise the symptoms in time. A wrong turn on her way to visit her brother leads her to an abbey where she meets Abbess Theodora and she begins visits with the abbess. Eventually Mickey leaves her medical practice to enter the novitiate at the abbey on her journey to become a nun. What she discovers and learns, the lives she touches and those who touch hers, will change her life forever. This is absolutely one of my favourite books and one of the most beautiful love stories I have ever read.
When a story haunts you long after you have finished the book, when you feel as though the characters and their story are so real and captivating that it is as though you knew them personally, when you celebrate with them, mourn with them, long to spend more time with them, and miss them when their story ends, that, in my opinion, is the mark of a great book. In This Small Spot is such a story.
Ms. Werlinger’s characters, not only in this book, but others…and I have read them all…leave such an impact on the reader because of her unique and fully developed writing style. Ms. Werlinger’s style of writing pulls the reader into the characters’ lives…along with every emotion they experience along the way. It is this type of reader engagement that makes a story come alive. It makes it memorable and it definitely makes it worth the reader’s time.
This book is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys…reading.
These traditions are so expertly woven into this story, that they are just as important as the characters. Normally, I don't care for a host (pardon the pun) of characters, but everyone in the book added to the plot. What a refreshing change!
Sister Michelle "Mickey" Stewart, an oncology doctor, enters St. Bridget's convent to escape the things in her life she cannot handle, and by entering the convent, she exchanges one set of problems for another. Sister Anselma presents to her the biggest challenge and is most attractive to Mickey, but she must resist. Until she cannot resist any longer. This is a wonderful story. Please read every word.
This book bought back some wonderful and some heartbreaking memories.
I wouldn't trade this book or those memories for anything.
Crying,laughing,feeling deeply are all exhausting emotions but so worthwhile .
Thank you,Caren for this lovely story.
It is one of those books that I'm having a hard time letting go.

I thought that I would find this tale of someone voluntarily choosing to be a nun incredibly irritating as I've never understood why anyone would want to choose that path for themselves. But this wove its web and drew me in with multi-dimensional characters crafted so well by Werlinger and with wonderful Mickey at its heart. I laughed, I cried, I cried some more. It was a veritable sob fest and I'm still not sure I can forgive Werlinger for that, but, by God, it's good!
I am in awe at the author for the detail and depth to this story. I found it riveting. So well written, about a surgeon who’s wife dies and enters an abbey to find a new purpose for her life.
The story consists of past and present interactions. I was so interested to learn about Nuns and their work, something that surprised me, this is owing to the great, detailed writing.
This story stirred so many emotions. And the end left me so emotional but also in awe that an author could write such an extraordinary book.
Thank you Caren for a superb story.
The author evokes scenery and atmosphere with admirable subtlety, and the monastery and its grounds are beautifully depicted without excessive description.
The interaction between characters occasionally strays into areas a little cosy for my taste, but this did not spoil my enjoyment of a jolly good story.
With this book you experience this heartbreaking journey of Michele trying find peace after the death of her partner Alice. I found myself though-lay engrossed in the story willing to get to the end. Tears plenty of them no spoilers for the end. For more of a in depth review read TerryB's it's perfect.
You will fall in love with the atmosphere of the Abbey and Mother and all the other characters.
