Philippa Talbot is magnificent. She's the type of woman who sits alone on boards, who's worked her way up alongside "higher-up" men, and who has both men and women working under her. And now she's leaving it all to become a nun. An intricate look at the life of a Benedictine nun, the rhythms and prayers of the silent life are conveyed with a unique clarity of vision. 653 pages, softcover.
