5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, well researched tale of unwilling nuns., 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sacred Hearts (Kindle Edition)
The central character, the dispensary sister, is a most sympathetic, interesting character. Too intelligent to be taken in by some of the more devout nuns' simplistic approach to their religion, she is a kind friend to many in the midst of a lot of politics and back biting. The Mother Superior was willing to stop at almost nothing to prevent one young novice from leaving - especially as she had a wonderful voice. I learnt a lot about the enforced entry into convents for girls - too ugly, too pretty, too wayward, deformed, too challenging, and the fathers could simply pack them off. And yet a number found a contented life within the walls. At the time the novel was written there was still quite a lot of freedom allowed to the nuns within the walls, but change was coming.
