The young narrator arrives with gentle visions spawned by The Sound of Music, only to encounter the harshness of life in this secretive society. Her wit, compassion, and musicality foment a rebellion against rules forbidding expressions of joy and intimacy, as she struggles between allegiance to the heart and her vow of blind obedience to flawed and abusive superiors.

Recently filed lawsuits against the Church suggest that the timing could not be better for an ex-nuns memoir. Part mystery, part coming of age story, this narrative seeks neither to damn nor to exonerate but to uncover the truth.
