Overview
The Sixties were a wild time but not for six young girls who each wanted to give their lives to serve as God wished them to serve. Each had a dream in her heart of becoming a nun, a Bride of Christ. Trouble began almost immediately when the young women tried to mold themselves to the severe and structured life of the convent: a world of silence, penance, self-deprivation, unquestioning obedience and prayer. The strategies and self-deceptions they learned in order to cope with their strange new life are told here through the voice of one inmate, a fourteen-year-old who left behind family and entered the shuttered world of the nunnery. Who stayed and who could not stay becomes evident as the story of their spiritual and emotional journey unfolds.
