Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: THE INSPIRING, REVEALING STORY OF ONE WOMAN’S YEARS BEHIND CONVENT WALLS AND HER RETURN TO THE WORLD OUTSIDE In 1925 Mary McCarran joined her sister Margaret in the Convent of the Holy Names. Here is the story of the black-garbed postulant, hopeful and homesick. Here is the nun, tried and proven, exchanging vows for a gold wedding ring. Sister Mary Mercy made her greatest sacrifice in a small convent room where, after thirty-two years, she exchanged her beloved habit for a new pink dress—and returned to the secular world. This is Mary McCarran’s unforgettable and inspiring story of those three decades as a member of a religious community. “An apparently faithful view of some inner workings of the Catholic Church seldom revealed dispassionately to the public at large...an altogether extraordinary story told in an extraordinary manner.”—NEW YORK JOURNAL AMERICAN

Download or read book The Nun written by Denis Diderot and published by Penguin UK. This book was released on 2005-05-26 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1758 Diderot's friend the Marquis de Croismare became interested in the cause célèbre of a nun who was appealing to be allowed to leave a Paris convent. Less than a year later, in an affectionate attempt to trick his friend, Diderot created this masterpiece - a fictitious set of desperate and pleading letters to the Marquis from a teenage girl forced into the nunnery because she is illegitimate. In these letters, the impressionable and innocent Suzanne Simonin describes the cruelty and abuse she has suffered in an institution poisoned by vicious gossip, intrigues, persecutions and deviance. Considered too subversive during Diderot's lifetime, The Nun first appeared in print in 1796 following the Revolution. Part gripping novel, part licentious portrayal of sexual fervour and part damning attack on oppressive religious institutions, it remains one of the most utterly original works of the many eighteenth-century.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The year is 1864. Sister Thomas Josephine, an innocent Visitantine nun from St Louis, Missouri, is making her way west to the promise of a new life in Sacramento, California. When an attack on her wagon train leaves her stranded in Wyoming, Thomas Josephine finds her faith tested and her heart torn between Lt. Theodore F. Carthy, a man too beautiful to be true, and the mysterious grifter Abraham C. Muir. Falsely accused of murder she goes on the run, all the while being hunted by a man who has become dangerously obsessed with her.

Nunslinger is the true tale of Sister Thomas Josephine, a woman whose desire to do good in the world leads her on an incredible adventure that pits her faith, her feelings and her very life against inhospitable elements, the armies of the North and South, and the most dangerous creature of all: man.
Summary Book Review The Bosom of Abraham by Beatrice Blue Pipe:
Download or read book The Bosom of Abraham written by Beatrice Blue Pipe and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2015-04-25 with total page 90 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As a child, Beatrice Blue Pipe was confused and hurt by what her teachers told her. As a student, her teachers at Canada’s Christian-administered residential school system taught that God hated Canada’s First Peoples and First Nations. From Blue Pipe’s perspective, she was condemned. As she grew, the hateful lessons of her youth slowly consumed her, and like too many others, she attempted to silence those demons with alcohol and thoughts of suicide. But as an adult, she is now a powerful advocate for her culture and dignity. By exploring the devastating impact of the Canadian government’s educational system on the minds and spirits of First Nation children, Beatrice aims to expose the negative impact these multifaceted, inhuman legislative polices have had on her community. Tragically, these practices continue to have a grave, detrimental impact on the well-being of First Nations people. In The Bosom of Abraham, she celebrates the incredibly resilient First People. Canada’s systematic and multigenerational attempt to eradicate their cultural ceremonies and languages failed. The ancient cultural knowledge and strength of First Nations people survives today, which ensures the survival of future generations. The Bosom of Abraham is the story of Beatrice’s journey as a child, a daughter and a student—who resists the efforts of the system to crush her—into that of a woman, a warrior and a leader, in the effort to celebrate, protect and preserve her cultural and personal heritage.
Summary Book Review Was It Really Like That? by Gino Gammaldi:
Download or read book Was It Really Like That? written by Gino Gammaldi and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2019-09-11 with total page 948 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Gino Gammaldi has a clear memory of the early beginnings of his family who migrated from Italy to Australia in the mid 1950s and has tried to portray those memories in this book in a manner that is sure to engage everyone’s interest. Much of the earlier parts of this book are written through the eyes of a child, growing up among everything that should probably relate only to those who are adult enough to cope with such hardships, temptations, sorrows, and disappointments. But, as a child, these elements became a part of the simple life that was as normal as anything one could imagine. But, in later stages, Gino also remembers all the good and fun times, and he portrays these beautifully and graphically through the many characters you will encounter in the two volumes of his book. He brings them to life and engages the reader, simply by the humour and by the special qualities that each one of these characters magnifies and how all of these experiences impacted on his own life.

Download or read book Golden Memories of My Life With Ruth & Sam written by Joe Callihan and published by eBookIt.com. This book was released on 2015-02-28 with total page 69 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Golden Memories of My Life with Ruth and Sam offers insight into the kind of training into manhood; which sadly today, due to liberalism, is lacking in many lives of the unfortunate. Both of my grandparents were of the old school, pioneer spirit. They taught me to have respect for those who earn my respect by their quality of character. Also to earn my own self respect, due to my placing value upon the qualities of character I desire to possess. Self reliance is missing in the lives of those voting with an attitude of "give me;" and self respect gets thrown out of the window by those lacking in character. Worse yet, many today vote for politicians which are characters, rather than demanding they HAVE character. As the result, many people in America have been ignorantly flushing America down the toilet of history's once great nations. How very blessed I was to have the upbringing I received. This book contains not only the story of two extraordinary people. It offers a very good guide for parents of today, who desire to see their children grow into respectable men and women.

Her search leads her to her second cousin who has information regarding his mother’s past; information Sarah seeks as his Mother would be her Mothers sister. He, however, is reluctant to provide too much information as he is ashamed to admit that his mother is a nun; and was a nun at his time of birth. Undaunted, Sarah boards an airline and makes her way too Provence, France, the locale of Sarah’s cousins Mother. Sister Mary Theresa enlightens Sarah as to the rationale that both she and Sarah’s mother labored under as members of the cloth when they both conceived and delivered their children.
