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!!!!!!!!!!!
