Five Years in Heaven ~ John Schlimm

This is a story about friendship between a 31 year old man and an 87 year old nun.  When they meet and keep up the friendship, it is a friendship that grows into the nun becoming a mentor about life. 

This was a hard book for me to keep interested in as I felt it was too long and should have been edited to a smaller version book.  I think if it had less very detailed descriptions that I would have really enjoyed it.  I feel I could have gotten more out of this story if while I was reading I was thinking please hurry up and get to the point, the chapters seemed to drag on.   I did like the thoughts and theme of the story.

I would recommend this to those that don't mind a slow paced, very descriptive story.  The subject interested me, the author's type of writing was not for me.  This is a story about a very special friendship, the one that everyone hopes to experience in life.
