Product Description

Read and cherished by thousands all over the world since it was first published in 1981, this book takes the reader on a spiritual journey that began one September day in 1962 when Armstrong said good-bye to her family at London's King's Cross station and journeyed on to the convent in Tripton to become a nun. This is by turns a book of spiritual revelation and an intimate look at life inside the cloistered walls of the convent. It is, most importantly, the first chapter in Karen Armstrong's journey to become one of the most beloved and respected writers dealing with religion today.
