A fantastic look at the life of the Carthusian monks at the charterhouse in Parkminster, England. The author, who is married to a former Carthusian, chronicles the vocational journey of five young men who come to the bell pull in 1960--and how only one went "all the way" to solemn profession.
The only thing I didn't like was the emphasis on sex in one part of the book. Yes, ok, it's celibate men, and we must talk about SEX, apparently. Geez. This was a tad overheated.
