Amy has great qualities such as determination, compassion , love for God and a desire to serve Him. I loved how the author gave us a tour of what a nun does throughout the day. It is a rewarding job and I am blessed by those who are called to do this. There was a part in the book that really broke my heart. When you read about the elderly being cared for in deplorable conditions , you will be angry and sad at the same time. I was happy to see that Amy stood up and did something to help them. I admired her for speaking up and getting them help. I admire how Amy knew she was to be at a certain place even though it would be a vow of silence most of the time. She does go through many tests to prove she is suppose to be there. The book is good but at times I felt like it kinda dragged in places. I was a little impatient as she kept going from one place to another. The author leaves us with a cliffhanger, so I have to read the next book to find out what happens to Amy. Does she get to stay at the place she feels God is calling her to?
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
In this book, Amy is in the process of becoming a nun, but it is very difficult. I liked that she questioned the elaborate richness in Rome, during her Holy week visit. She had a heart for those who were so poor and saw such hypocrisy in incredible riches of the cathedrals, while people outside suffered and died with nothing. I liked that she questioned going to a priest for forgiveness of sins, instead of going directly to the one who died for her sins.
Some of the narrative was a bit long, but that is OK, it was a relief from the quick, triple spaced dialog driven stories that abound today.
I hear Amy as Judy Garland’s Dorothy in Wizard of Oz … without the songs.
The story got a little slow at times, but not so difficult to lose attention. Amy is very endearing and sweet. Overall, I enjoyed it very much.
