This is the story of a welathy woman's callin to a Catholic Bendedictine monastary. A real picture of life in a maonastary. Eventhough the names are fictional, Rumer spent 3 years lodged outside a real monastary and was allowed to interview the nuns there for material used in this novel.

A must read for anyone contemplating this life-style or who knows a monk or nun.

Descriptions of the countryside and seasons are fantastic!
