5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating read, 12 Dec 2000

Maureen (EDINBURGH, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Unveiled: Nuns Talking (Paperback)
I was recommended to read this book by a friend. I started it with some suspicion fearing that it might be rather boring. How wrong I was!
As Protestants we often have a picture of Nuns as rather Holy but also rather "goody-goody" and not really of this world! Certainly not the Nuns interviewed for this book. This is not another book about Nuns who leave their convents: this is about those who "stay in".
"Unveiled" devotes a chapter to each Nun interviewed. It not only tells you about many different types of Nuns but also makes it very clear that they are REAL people. I strongly recommend you to read this book. Like me, you may find yourself quite surprised by some of the words and actions of the Nuns.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Unveiled: Nuns Talking (Paperback)
I'd never normally choose a book like this but a friend was sure I'd enjoy it. she was right! It's cut through all my prejudices about nuns, as well as giving a glimpse into a different way of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, shows the real nuns beneath societys stereotypes, 1 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Unveiled: Nuns Talking (Paperback)
I loved this book, it was captivating from beginning to end. It is the story of 10 nuns lives and each explains what it was that drove them to live in a religious community. You will never look at nuns in the same way again. I just wish there were more books like it!
