Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

"A novel of sensitive dedication." —The Atlantic Monthly

"Rumer Godden deals precisely with the theme of the religious life . . . as representing ’the heart of holiness of the Church.’ It is at once a life of great peace and often equally intense struggle." —America magazine
This extraordinarily sensitive and insightful portrait of religious life centers on Philippa Talbot, a highly successful professional woman who leaves her life among the London elite to join a cloistered Benedictine community. In this gripping narrative of the crises surrounding the ancient Brede abbey, Rumer Godden penetrates to the mysterious, inner heart of a religious community—a place of complexity and conflict, as well as joy and love. It is a place where Philippa, to her own surprise and her friends’ astonishment, finds her life by losing it.

Author Bio

    I have read this book at least 4 times cover to cover. There are so many passeges that describe the joy,sorrow and personal fulfillment as you make your way in the religious life. Better understood by Cathelics but recommended to all that want to understand the powerfull pull that is felt to enter the life of a cloistered nun. A great read!!!!!!!!!!!
