Front excerpt
Lesbian Nuns I know are going to dance! In convents this book will go around like hot cakes, just the way THE HITE report did. Everybody read it. Lesbian nuns will be more self conscious about this book.
They're also going to be listening to the response from other members of the community and praying it is going to be ok.

The book will also be an occasion for confronting a lot of pain. Lesbian sisters who are not out in their community will have to listen to homophobic reactions. But it will be a catalyst. All hells going to break loose.
Religious communities are going to have to discuss the book. They're going to have to respond to the reality, and they have never had to do that.

Back excerpt

Nuns. Alien in their dramatic garb. Set apart from us in their regimented communities, by their singular dedication. — Nuns. Different...Fascinating. Their lives intrigue us all. In these unique and compelling revelations, both ex-nuns and present nuns unlock the most secret doors in their closed and mysterious communities. — Under rigidly enforced rules of behaviour, where women's lives are consecrated and subjugated to the most sacred of vows, where "particular friendships" are ruthlessly eradicated under pain of sin and expulsion, still the power of love manages to emerge and survive.

Each nun in these stories describes the individual and searing path she has journeyed to discover and face and experience and the truth of herself: the she is a Lesbian nun."
