raised catholic,have an aunt who finally left the convent ,went to 12 years of catholic schools,with nuns teaching all the way (yes, i've recoverd..lol) i read this book ages ago and found it to be very believable.this book is not a free for all sexy book. it tells the stories of women who are ex-nuns who found out about their sexuality later in life. a good read if you have an open mind.
A most unusual book. It was interesting reading about all those nuns & ex nuns telling their stories about coming to know them selves, both in & out of the convent.
It got a little long toward the end though.
