This was our book group's book last month--led to a lot of discussion, and the book was uniformly enjoyed. Blasts stereotypes of nuns right out of the water. There are Buddhist nuns, nuns who aren't sure they believe in God, nuns who KNOW they don't believe in the Pope, nuns who think that living away from society's problems is the only way to really be able to focus prayerfully on making changes, nuns who think that the only way to effect change is to live among the people they want to help...there are all kinds of nuns, just like there are all kinds of any other women in America.
