Review by Brenda (posted on 28-Jul-2007)
Such insight into the lives of nuns and the politics that occur.
I hope things have changed.
Audrey Hepburn is incredible.
Such a sacrifice these women make and so much is expected of them.
Can't wait to read about what happened to the real subject of the book.
It was a hard choice to leave the order, to quit being a nun. Hope I am as strong if ever faced with a similar choice.
Do you know something we don't?
