Summary

An artist's book which uses the story of a wayward nun to examine contemporary convent life and the religious vows of poverty, chastity and obedience from a feminist perspective. The artist leaves it up to the reader whether the book relates a story of fear, deception and hypocrisy, or one of unconditional love, forgiveness and women's resourcefulness.
