Bestselling author Jane Christmas resolves to enter a convent to find out whether she is, as she puts it, nun material. She also wants to understand why she has felt - and avoided - a siren call to religious life for so long. But just when she convinces herself to take the plunge, her longterm partner suddenly proposes marriage. Determined t to sideline her monastic dreams any longer, Christmas puts her engagement on the back burner and sets off on an extraordinary year-long adventure to four convents. With her trademark humour, verve and feistiness, Christmas relates how she revels in - and at times chafes and rails against - the silent, simple existence she has sought all of her life. When an unexpected and searing memory rears up, she is forced to confront both her past and her future.
Jane Christmas is an acclaimed Canadian writer of travel memoirs, including And Then There Were Nuns, her account of the time she spent testing out her vocation following a marriage proposal. And What the Psychic Told the Pilgrim: A Mid-Life misadventure on Spain's Camino de Santiago de Compostela. She now lives in Devon in the UK.
