This was not a fast paced story with plot twists and turns. But it was a well written story with wonderful character development, from Helene to Reverend Mother Crewelman to Mother Adelli. The characters were rich and I truly felt like I was a part of their lives.
Not being Catholic, I didn’t really understand all the rules. But it didn’t matter. The story was so well told that nothing else mattered. I wanted to jump in and defend Mother Adelli on multiple occasions.
I recommend this book. It will pull you deep within the pages and leave you thinking when the last page is turned. Four out of five stars.
