Interesting Read, Novel by Cloistered Nun

What makes Amata Means Beloved most interesting is that the author herself is a cloistered religious. So this is not a story written by a clever researcher but rather a tale about what goes on behind the cloister walls written by someone who lives there.

One can imagine that not a few of the stories told about the sisters in the novel reflect the stories of the actual nuns living with Sister Mary Catharine in their Monastery in N.J.

The story is a quick read and a real page turner, plus here is a way to contribute to a community of nuns that are praying for you day and night...
