It is the story of an extraordinary woman who views things inside and outside the cloister with wisdom and wit. Before Sister Felicity brings us within the cloister she tells us of her life outside the walls: her wartime years in the W. A. A. F. Her encounter with Catholicism . . . Her conversion her decision to join a strict religious order. Beneath the gaity of these pages one senses that here is a person who has weathered spiritual storms, a woman for whom the early years of convent life (which she describes so vividly) — were not a bed of roses. Sr. Felicity has found peace and purpose in her vocation. She has no inclination to leap over the wall but she understands why others did, do, and will. This is a book that will make you laugh and make you think. .
