“How we grieve the loss of a loved one is complex, mysterious, and unique. Ronda Chervin’s Last Fling peeks into her grieving process after her husband’s sudden death plunges her into that unwanted world of ‘widowhood’. Her struggles with her feelings, friendships, insecurities, longings, frustrations, and more eventually lead her to the source and object of all love. Trust in the Lord. The trip is worth it!” – Dianne Ahern, Author of the Today books and the Sr. Philomena books

“Chervin takes us on a spiritual adventure of a soul both ordinary and unique, as she struggles to emerge from the fantasies of worldly egoism into the authentic light of day. The spiritual life, Chervin reminds us, is not a magical mystery tour of religious novelties, but a taste of God’s enduring love and perfect peace. Delightful and endearing!” — Dr. Heather M. Erb, author of The Path of Spiritual Happiness (En Route Books and Media, 2016)

“Dr. Chervin’s book is a delightfully humorous and touching portrayal of a Catholic widow’s adventures for a second husband. Dr. Margo Kemperdick is overly intellectual, obsessive, quirky, and childishly lovable, with an insatiable appetite for double burgers and our Lord. An absolute joy to read.” – Dr. Suzanne Jamail, author of Healing from Heaven (En Route Books and Media, 2017)

“The Last Fling by Ronda Chervin is an eye opening look at how one woman is dealing with suddenly being alone, and finding a new and everlasting love in Jesus. I loved it and recommend it to all.” – C. A. Riley OP, HT (ASCP), Lay Dominican, Cedaredge, Colorado
