They were sisters once.

Almost forty years ago, in a more innocent time, two girls enter the convent. Angelina and Joanna come from vastly different backgrounds, but they have one thing in common: a desire to serve, to join in the community of sisters.

Despite the relative seclusion of the convent house in Minneapolis, they’re not immune to what’s happening in the world around them. In 1972 Angie’s involvement with a pregnant teenager triggers a crisis of faith. At the same time, Joanna’s relationship with a Vietnam veteran brings her face-to-face with the choices she made and didn’t make in her own life.

Then, Angie and Joanna leave the sisterhood, abandoning the convent for the exciting and confusing world outside. The world of choices to be made and risks to be taken. Of men and romantic love. The world of ordinary women.

Debbie Macomber illuminates women’s lives with compassion, with love and with grace. In Changing Habits she proves once again why she’s one of the world's most popular writers of fiction for, and about, women.

    " Actually quite an interesting story that was obviously researched. Changes in the Catholic church really impacted women called by God. The simplicity of the life of the three woman Debbie depicted was actually quite appealing; however, giving up all or most contact with the outside world would be too much of a downside. "

    " Spanning years from 1958 - 2002, this is an interesting story of three women, Angelina, Joanna, and Kathleen. All three, at different times, enter the order of St. Bridget Sisters of the Assumption.The book covers their adjustment to convent life and then, eventually, their adjustments to leaving the religious order. Very interesting story which delves into the years in which there was so much change going on in the Catholic church. "

    " I picked this up thinking it was a quickly read romance novel, but it isn't. The author wrote this historical fiction novel about three girls who become nuns. It follows them from their decision to enter the convent through their decisions to actual leave the convent and become ex-nuns. The author did a lot of research about the Catholic Church and the life of a nun. It is very interesting and provokes a lot of discussion. I never thought I would say this about a Debbie Macomber novel, but it would make a good read for a book club!Changing Habits "
