This book was a good sharing of life experience. Murray is honest and takes self-responsibility for her life. It is good to find a comfortable resolution to ones ideals and experiences that clash inside. Thanks to Murray for shareing. Thank you for reading this review.

This book is a very well-written account of one woman's journey through life. I think many people can relate to her story of rejecting the traditional faith and morals of their childhood, only to realize years later that time-tested values have a purpose and wisdom greater than our own short life experience. The author is not afraid to reveal potentially embarassing inner thoughts and outer actions, which adds to the sincerity of her story. Her explanation of her struggle with her decision regarding childbearing is particularly honest and painful. This book shows how a relatively ordinary life can become an extraordinary story.

I especially loved this book because the author, in being very honest about her own experiences within the Catholic church, spoke directly to my own experiences. It was very validating, in addition to giving a shape to my individual story - a story that so many of us in the tragedy of the post Vatican 2 world, grew up in.

I thank Lorraine for sharing her journey. I believe there are many other women that can experience healing through this testimony. So much has been lost over the last three decades.

More About the Author

Lorraine (Viscardi) Murray grew up in Miami. She graduated from the University of Florida with graduate degrees in English and philosophy and then taught both subjects in college. In her forties she finally got serious about pursuing her dream of writing and left teaching to become a free-lance writer. Today she is a columnist with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The Georgia Bulletin. Her column in The Georgia Bulletin won a first-place award in national competition from the Catholic Press Association in 2014.

She has written eight books so far, including a biography of Flannery O'Connor ("The Abbess of Andalusia"). She also enjoys writing cozy mysteries: "Death in the Choir," "Death of a Liturgist," and "Death Dons a Mask." They all feature Francesca Bibbo, Tubs the cat, and a hamster named Ignatius. Lorraine lives in Decatur with her husband, and when she is not hunkered down at the computer, she likes to bake bread, watch hummingbirds, grow orchids, and chase squirrels out of the garden.
