    Story
    (66)

    The year is 1570, and in the convent of Santa Caterina, in the Italian city of Ferrara, noblewomen find space to pursue their lives under God's protection. But any community, however smoothly run, suffers tremors when it takes in someone by force. And the arrival of Santa Caterina's new novice sets in motion a chain of events that will shake the convent to its core.

    Would you listen to Sacred Hearts again? Why?

    yes, it's a good historical representation of the period told with sensitivity through the experiences of nuns and the plight of women of that era.


    What other book might you compare Sacred Hearts to and why?

    Anya Seaton "The Green Darkness".. the story telling is as gripping.


    If you could take any character from Sacred Hearts out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Sarah Dunant, the author... because she is an old friend.
