They were sisters once.

In a more innocent time, three girls enter the convent. Angelina, Kathleen and Joanna come from very different backgrounds, but they have one thing in common--the desire to join a religious order.

Despite the seclusion of the convent house in Minneapolis, they're not immune to what's happening around them, and each sister faces an unexpected crisis of faith. Ultimately Angie, Kathleen and Joanna all leave the sisterhood, abandoning the convent for the exciting and confusing world outside. The world of choices to be made, of risks to be taken. Of men and romantic love. The world of ordinary women....

Great book.

Lovely story of 4 main characters: 3 women; entering the convent, their work in the convent and finally leaving the convent.
The 4th character is the convent itself. The novel provides an insight into the workings of the 1960's convent - which I was quite curious. Macomber's convent undergoes the liberalization of the 1960's and these developments are as much a part of the story as the growth of the people.

An enlightening and lovely read!
