In an easy, conversational style, the author, a nun for over forty years, givesreaders the facts and fictions of the monastic life: how the choice is made;what lies behind the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience; the nuts andbolts of monastic calling; what monks and nuns do all day; how they supportthemselves; and why they live as they do. Brushing away the stereotypesof sainthood, she provides an enlightening glimpse into a vibrant femalesubculture that is richly diverse, faith-filled, and often supremely rewarding.
