Description from inside front cover
The Nun’s Story takes you behind cloister walls with Sister Luke into that almost unknown world that is the heart of a nun.
To outsiders, life in a convent seems so serene as to be almost motionless. But when a free-spirited young Belgian girl, Gaby Van der Mal, become Sister Luke, she learned that a nun’s dedicated life is one of complex disciplines and constant inner struggle. Even more unexpectedly, she found herself projected into violent adventure when her Order placed her as a nurse, first in the disturbed ward of an asylum, then in a Congo mission hospital, and finally in warn-torn Belgium, where the conflict within herself was at last resolved.
