Vegetation grows out of the mouths of stone angels, and sheep wander through the chapel. For Iphigenia, Margarita, and Carla the rhythm of nature and the rituals of the Church have joined to make an encompassing whole, a garment as fitting for their lives as their homespun clothes. They pray, they do their daily tasks. Brambles enclose the monastery and the three nuns have forgotten the world outside. Until a worldly young priest forges his way in. Brisk and businesslike, Father Ignatius plans to transform the nuns' very existence. Or is it the man who will be transformed?

    " I'm not a habitual re-reader, but this one goes on the short list of books I'm likely to revisit. In the absence of patriarchs (and the rest of civilization, for that matter), a convent organically departs from orthodoxy over time and returns to the earth, becoming more and more like a coven..... "

    " This was a slow starter, but as the characters developed and all sorts of parallels emerged, I became more and more entwined in it. Really nice story, fresh sort of plot. I enjoyed it quite a bit! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/29/2014

    " This seemed to b a love it or hate it book for our book clubs, but for Wendi (co-worker/bookseller) and me it was a big LOVE IT! Fresh, funny, bittersweet, not like any other books I;ve read. I wanted to yell, "leave these nuns alone!" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 1/24/2014

    " I agree with this review from the Atlantic Journal Constitution: "A great story...the book walks a fine line between magic and religion, the pagan and the Christian...Part of the novel's charm lies in its fairy-tale flavor, the dash of magic Day has added." It provoked a lively and long discussion at my book group. "

    " Hilarious! I found the "baby Moses" reference especially amusing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beegirl | 1/7/2014

    " one of my all time faves, warm, funny, clever, poetic, engaging, earthy. i will continue to revisit this treasure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rj | 1/7/2014

    " I had no idea this book was a bit of a comedy but it was hard not to fall in love with these quirky nuns isolated from the rest of the world. "

    " Seriously, Stephen King's Misery meets William Barrett's Lilies of the Field...enough said! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christina | 11/28/2013

    " Ok, I am officially giving up on this one for the time being. Now the nuns are drinking lambs blood instead of wine during their sacrament. Ugh... also, they think that their dead sister nuns have started to inhabit the sheep they tend and they never bathe...also they tell weird stories... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie | 11/8/2013

    " THis is one of the strangest books I've ever read - lots of surprises. Consider this a "must read". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 9/22/2013

    " Magic realism at it's best. Nuns isolated on an island, sheep hold a priest hostage, spirits are changed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pearlanne | 8/30/2013

    " Shirley - this is the one Celia and I were talking about. Read at your own risk - it sticks with you! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C.J. Hill | 7/18/2013

    " Another completely different setting, characters and events. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nelia Wolosky | 7/11/2013

    " Great in a twisted kind of way. i plan to reread this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret Williams | 6/25/2013

    " Interesting and odd, but I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 6/5/2013

    " Weird and engrossing. Nifty surprise ending. The cynic in me liked the portrayal of the Catholic clergy, "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 5/22/2013

    " Hilarious! Story of three nuns who live in an abandoned abbey and a man who stumbles upon their property. Very strange and unpredictable. Very good read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anais | 4/26/2013

    " Great story build fails at ending. BOOM. "

    " Enjoyable - reminded me a little of the Cadfael series. "
