4.0 out of 5 stars They ARE human....., July 19, 2011
As a survivor of Catholic grade schools, I always assumed that the Nuns were, well....just "different" from the rest of us. They ain't (not all of them anyway) , at least per Patricia O'Donnel Gibson. The first few chapters laid the groundwork for the decision that she made to follow the "calling". To anybody who grew up in the Catholic Schools, it will be familiar, funny, and scary ( damn that could have been me!) to others educational.
As the chapters unfold, I found myself immersed in her world. Not only did Sr. Marie Petra provide a view of a secret life that "outsiders" never see but was able to share how it felt to be experiencing it firsthand, being neither hero nor villian. She is after all, simply human with her share of doubts and desires, which I believe is the point of the story, and a well told one!
It is a true "coming of age" story, with a twist.
