Five Years in Heaven

Product Details
This book reminded me of the best selling book Tuesdays with Morrie.  The great friendship between this young man and an aging nun is priceless.  I definitely wanted to meet Sister Augustine and also see her amazing works of art.

When I read she painted ceramics and the gushing praises of the author, my eyes rolled.  I figured it was the plain Jane busts we see at vendor shows.  I immediately went online to see the nun's work. I was pleasantly surprised at the beauty and uniqueness in each piece.

It is a heart tugging story that connected these two people. I appreciated how the author brought out Sister Augustine's down to earth spirit, yet heavenly credit where it is due.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a heartfelt friendship.
