The Mistress of Novices in Kathryn Hulme’s The Nun’s Story capturing some of the difficulties of life in community:


‘Once, long ago, I too found the community life a pure agony.  I suffered, knowing that my forced participation could never be pleasing to God.  I struggled to overcome this.  I thought about the Christ who took to Himself the very humblest of companions.  I told myself that quite...

The Basil and Josephine Stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Rate this book
