I was disappointed once again the Vatican publishes something that is unreadable.

5.0 out of 5 stars I left because it was a waste of my one life, April 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is a masterpiece. The development of Father Odran is thoughtful and exquisitely drawn. Years ago before the Vatican Council II I took vows as a nun. But i was one of the first that left (after thirteen years) in the huge exodus from American convents and rectories. People have told me for over time why I chose to go. But here is the real story told for now with the abuse scandal. I left because it was a waste of my one life. I have read and reread the last two pages. Treat yourself to a book that is hard to read but very satisfying.
John Boyne paints the culture perfectly in every character. I can say so much more but you need to read for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taking turns at being the Charm School teacher!, April 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Quadruplets inherit a Charm School that their beloved mentor left them. The sisters discover a secret that worries and excites them. This first book in the series is Caelen and she is the first to teach an after hours naughty class. Her childhood nemesis assists her, and the banter between the two is hysterical. Sexy techniques for the naughty charm school are detailed and so much fun. This book is funny, titillating and it'll make you blush as the two former middle-schoolers find love. There are several twists and turns that surprise the reader. It is worth the time.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Memories of ex- nun ( I am one) are hard to write. But Karen has written one of the best. It is just so hard to explain a life that cuts off your emotions, takes away any initiative and asks you to strive for perfection. Yaweee!

This is hands down the best account of VCII which was 50 years ago next year. Worth every penny. In fact I will soon reread it.

This book next to my bible has been my companion for about 15 years. I meditate using the table of contents as a starter; the inside is even more time worthy.
