Thoroughly engaging with an effective narrator. And it is true at least the broad strokes. The will to live with a devotion to help. Freedom within the structure of the convent.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book as I have others by EOWilson. Still the Eagle Scout being so thorough in his arguments. And he has opinions most of which resonated. Being just a humble lay person myself he was engaging. Good writer.

Wonderful experience in a moving story with a superb narrator who captures the characters movingly. Loved the afterward by the author. I loved Teddy who provides a great contrast to WAR story.

It seems a missed opportunity to Russianize the accents instead of having it seem like an American story.

Wish I could give 10 stars to the narrator. He read the stories with such character. I will look for other books by this wonderful man. Thank you.

The book disappointed in scope. Although I like the narrator in general his pronunciation of key words was upsetting. Where was discussion of Renewal Judaism? Or at least a mention. Overall I appreciated the book and appreciated keeping Israeli Palestinian conflict. Out and focusing on both law and beliefs.

This book kept me totally engaged. The story and the ideas - thought and then dismissed but lingering still kept coming. Each character - person, history, land, deserve its own book. Looking forward to the next one.
