Product Description


Judith McClure is known to many in Scotland and indeed in the wider world as an innovative  and outward-looking educationalist. But what many people do not know - and that applies to her countless friends in all walks of life - is that she spent a number of years as a nun. How she came to do that, and what happened to her in those years is the subject of this beautiful memoir.

What emerges from this book is a sense of Judith's intensely engaging personality. This is a story of a spiritual journey, but it is also an account of how such a journey takes place in a social and political context. In particular, it provides a critique of of authority and the role that authority may seek to play in religious life.
