This is a wonderful story, one I found myself wondering about until I could get back to it. Simply beautiful!

Sometimes bizarre and just plain gross but always interesting. A fascinating mixture of fairytale, folklore, religion and animal husbandry.

Strange. Flowed nicely, easy to read, just odd. Not what I expected the storyline to be. Alright, but won't read it again.

The narrative unfolds in a dreamy, hypnotic mood that captures well the timeless quality of the nuns' existence until the arrival of a priest who threatens to bring an end to the life of their community. Creates a highly vivid contrast between the sleepy peace of their agrarian existence versus the purposefulness and often harsh swiftness of modern society. Poses interesting questions about the divergent ways spirituality develops under such different conditions.

I would echo the previous review. It is a book with a unique story to tell.

This was a strangely good book. The conclusion was a bit contrived, but getting there was amusing in a disturbing sort of way.

This is a gently used HC with a remainder mark on page tops.
