5.0 out of 5 stars Dated, perhaps, but still funny--sort of arsenic & old lacey, December 30, 2002
This review is from: A Nun in the Closet (Mass Market Paperback)
Sister John and Sister Hyacinth are wonderful characters and they do triumph over evil as one would hope, but not without making one laugh out loud.
What a great little Gilman novel, even though its situation is a bit out-of-date, its humor is timeless. One has to imagine the Sister Ursula of the closet to look a bit like some old Broderick Crawford character role. Gruff and needy to the max, with unexpected aide from strong-willed out of the cloister nuns.
Wouldn't you know that the nuns would meet with other ways of seeing God, typical enrichment by Gilman?
This was another pick up and read title of a novel by an author I have recently come to admire. And I do highly recommend your enjoyment of a definite period piece. It feels like it should be put to film in black and white, or just in some quirky feel-good comedic fashion.
Wholesome and fun! Do give it a try!

I have read, and re-read this book multiple times and it never fails to charm me.
