Loyola Press In This House of Brede

Philippa Talbot is magnificent. She's the type of woman who sits alone on boards, who's worked her way up alongside "higher-up" men, and who has both men and women working under her. And now she's leaving it all to become a nun. An intricate look at the life of a Benedictine nun, the rhythms and prayers of the silent life are conveyed with a unique clarity of vision. 653 pages, softcover.

I have read this book at least 4 times cover to cover. There are so many passeges that describe the joy,sorrow and personal fulfillment as you make your way in the religious life. Better understood by Cathelics but recommended to all that want to understand the powerfull pull that is felt to enter the life of a cloistered nun. A great read!!!!!!!!!!!
