Editorial Reviews


"Linda Anne Smith deftly unfolds the drama of a person who enters religious life in search of God and gradually realizes she is becoming estranged not only from society but also from herself. The story takes the reader into the secluded world of women religious who create a counterculture by living the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in community while devoting themselves to educating children. The reader admires the exemplary commitment embodied in a spectrum of characters. Smith's sympathetic depiction of these figures accounts for the poignancy of the shadows that emerge from within the best of people. The narrative illustrates how a benevolent community can become a web in which no one speaks her own mind with the result that everyone is diminished. In a perfect world, freedom is terrifying indeed.... This book belongs both in the hands of every layperson, woman religious, priest and bishop and also in the library of every diocese, parish, religious house and seminary in North America."
