5.0 out of 5 stars Intense, moving and enigmatic
I loved this book! The central character, Sister Bernard, is fascinating and ultimately very engaging - portrayed as stupid and shut off from the world around her, in all kinds of ways, she is not the usual 'romantic heroine' by any means. Her story is beautifully told; it's very intense and moving and it carries the reader along through the years. It's a dark story, told...

3.0 out of 5 stars everyone has a story to tell.....................................
I liked this book, but sadly, not as much as I thought I would.

3.0 out of 5 stars what a waste of a life, 31 Mar. 2012

This review is from: Obedience (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Quite a sad story. You are aware that something tragic has happened. The story is quite slow and drawn out which adds to the sadness when sister Bernard discovers her illegitimate daughter living close by. Her whole life is spent hoping to meet her and have some kind of relationship. This is not to be ,what a waste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Haunting, 23 April 2012

This review is from: Obedience (Kindle Edition)
Sister Bernard seems a hard woman, but as her story progresses you realise what happened to her in her past played a huge part in making her what she became - a sad life, some might say wasted - but dutiful, and above all obedient. It stayed with me for a while, and that, for me is the sign of a good book!
