it was amazing
bookshelves: literary-fiction, favorites

Intriguing story set in upperstate New York about a young postulant (nun) who starts showing signs of ecstacy (the religious kind, stigmata or nail puncture wounds in the palms and feet). The reader may be as divided as the convent itself over whether Mariette is faking it. Beautifully written novel. I loved it.
