Sacred Hearts by Sarah Dunant
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book took me 10 days to listen to. Wow - that's a long time for me.
This was a very thought provoking book for me. I oscillated between liking it a lot and really hating it. The writing was fine. The characters were fine. However, the restrictions and structure of convent life similtaneously enthralled & repulsed me.
At certain points the idea of living with a bunch of women in a community was very appealing. Then, I'd think about it a bit more and realize it would awful. Then, I would wonder how could I find something so appealing then so loathsome. I don't know. But I think it is worth exploring and discussing.
