    I loved this I have a thing about nuns, having gone to a convent school years back, and this did not disappoint Veronica Black managed to recreate the mystique of the nunnery, despite the modern setting I was stunned by the quality of her writing, and loved the characterisation...

    Probably a 3.5 from me as it rekindled memories of my convent education and I m a sucker for nuns and intrigue Not sure if I d buy into the whole series though, would feel a little bit claustrophobic in the cloisters

    An interesting read, both demythologising the life of a modern nun and exposing an interesting theological conundrum, when someone with a limited theological education and an equally odd upbringing distorts the whole issue of feminism in the church Looking forward to what Sister Joan confronts next.

    This books is set in pretty modern times, though it seems very foreign because it s in a convent The writing is very sparing, which helps impart the feeling of the setting as one where spiritual matters are supreme But the author does an excellent job of conveying the complexity of human...

    An easy, enjoyable read but completely unbelievable from the moment we see a Mother Superior wearing pink nail polish Sister Joan is sent from the convent where she s trained to fill a vacant place as a teacher at an isolated convent in Cornwall, where things are not as they should be starting with the aforementioned nail polish Sister Joan is a feisty character and some of the points about adapting to the religious life are convincing and thoughtful, but the plot is completely crazy Fun in An easy, enjoyable read but completely unbelie...

    I found this book a bit slow and simple, perhaps just in contrast to the Martha Grimes series I have been reading Good solid reading, even if the ending was telegraphed pretty far ahead of time Still there is something satisfying in sending off a perpetrator who will not be legally prosecu...

    This mystery ultimately disappoints It starts off quite amusingly, with the likes of a feeble minded nun who thinks that wall stains are divine apparations of angels Sister Joan, the protagonist, is, in effect, one of the few sane people in a lunatic asylum But, the touch is quite comedic, at least at the start.The story turns ...
