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.
