“Today's teardrops are tomorrow’s rainbows,” thought Dolores, but she learns over the course of a lifetime, that things don’t always turn out for the best…or do they?

Abstract:
Many people have wondered why they were born and what purpose they needed to fulfill during their lifetime. For centuries some questioned if events happened for a reason or were just a series of random moments.
Some discovered the answer to the age-old secret, but died before they had the chance to tell others. This is the story of three children who found the surprising answers to their combined destinies. Though one girl dies, the boy mysteriously disappears, one girl is left behind to tell their story. Her biggest discovery was Today's Teardrops are Tomorrow's Rainbows.

  Well written, easy read , 08/03/2010
Reviewer: MOAReader
This book is well-written and easy to read. I was able to finish it within a day. It had an endearing sense of humor and some surprises. The young Dolores was sweet. I also enjoyed the little glimpse into Slovenian culture. For the couple in the excerpt, I'm glad they confessed and that this was mentioned in the book. May all our 'destinies' be guided by God to the right path so that we may live together with Him forever in heaven.

Reviewer: Carol Clark
“Everyone has a turn in life and you’ll just have to wait for yours,” said Sister Dominic to young Dolores, who thinks her turn will never come—at least not the way she dreams it will. Growing up in WWII-era Cleveland, Ohio in a Slovenian immigrant family is hard, but never does a grown up and married Dolores imagine that having a husband and children of her own would be even harder. When her life can’t possibly get any worse, Dolores is reunited with a dear childhood friend. Together they find the love and happiness that has eluded both of them. Has Destiny finally smiled on them?

Reviewer: Sandy K
The book encompasses the life of a young girl brought up in the 1940's of Slovenian heritage. She describes the trials and tribulations of these times and the influence it plays on her life and the lives of the people around her. She experiences joy and sorrow as she journeys through life and makes the reader reflect on his or her own life. The book is well written and an easy read.

  Very Memorable and Enjoyable Reading , 09/04/2010
Reviewer: Patricia Sheehan
This story kept my interest throughout. The characters are likable and life does not always treat them well.Being married can throw you for a loop, when it supposed to bring support, love, and affection. The hard times and sad occasions made me feel fortunate for my own life. I enjoyed the happy times toward the end and was delighted to learn some Slovenian culture. Well written and easy to read.

  Heartwarming read , 09/10/2010
Reviewer: Charlotte Leas
what a heartwarming story. I happen to know the author and she wanted to put down on paper some of the history of her neighborhood. According to the author, the book is 90% fiction and 10% real life. Great love story and shows how the woman's movement has changed to way that women relate to the world. What a change in 50-60 years.

Reviewer: Maureen
This book kept me reading it till I finished as I wanted to know what happened with young Dolores and her family. I could relate to this story as so many people have so much tragedy in their liives but just deal with it one day at a time, but continue on with their lives. I felt so good for Dolores that she finally found happiness even if it was shortlived. Her and Nick were destined to meet again and I know many would have wanted them to have a longer life togehter but life is not always fair and they did finally did be together forever in a different world that we all hope we will be with our love one someday againh. This was a great book and kept you reading and reading and not able to put down.
