At the age of fifteen Elizabeth a talented athlete, gave up her dreams of competing in the Olympics to become a nun. She had separated from her mother and twin sister, given up her friends and world to pursue a saintly life. But she was unprepared for the life she was to lead. Although her life as a nun was a profound spiritual and emotional journey, her disenchantment slowly grew during the next twenty years. In the restrictive atmosphere of convent life Elizabeth struggled with conflicting emotions. A forbidden love affair forced her to come to grips with her needs as a woman and she felt compelled to leave the Order to find her true self. In this fascinating book she tells of her passionate pilgrimage from nun to free woman. This is a book filled with courage.
