I've had a fascination with nuns ever since I was young when my Barbie dolls would regularly make vows to God and then break them in favour of a white lace wedding to Ken The Nun's Story still makes me cry and I can't decide whether I prefer the book to the movie they're both compelling in their own ways I even wrote two chapters of a novel about a twentysomething nun who leaves her order under mysterious circumstances When I went to college an all female Catholic college run by nuns I observed up close and personal the tremendous sacrifice and strength of will exhibited by these amazing women And as an impressionable 20 year old I had a passing acuaintance with a woman who entered the convent when she was 22 fresh out of college and what I remember most was seeing her at a conference a year later thin as a rail and with the sparkle gone from her eyes What could this choice do to a woman especially in this day and age What does becoming a nun mean for someone's life and what happens if it doesn't work out The inner workings of convent life especially fascinated me and still do to the point that I am drawn to any books having to do with nuns especially contemporary accounts written by women who have left the order for secular life Fortunately I have a husband with a good memory for such details and this book was an early Christmas present when I complained about having nothing but parenting manuals to look at Carla van Raay is one of these women but she didn't leave just to lead a normal life she left and through a series of soul fragmenting mishaps decisions mistakes and choices some conscious others driven by past events still others from a desire to confront deeper parts of herself became a prostitute There's not much else to say about that except that she spends almost as much time detailing the nitty gritty of her life between the sheets as she does explaining the minutiae of convent life Some of it was nauseating as I have a weak stomach for certain things but some of it was absolutely spellbinding It was hard for me to remember that she entered the convent in the pre Vatican II days when Mother Superior ruled and her nuns weren't allowed to think for themselves at all Nuns today have considerably freedom of thought and movement or so it appears to an outsider like me Still there's something timeless about Carla's story and even though she'll be 70 next year she was born in 1938 her voice hovers in youth and it's that youth and innocence that informs her storyHaving seen the Australian miniseries Brides of Christ on DVD I had a fair idea about convent life in Australia in the 1960s and the effects Vatican II had on the traditional sisters some of whom could not handle their newfound freedom and went uietly insane I wished Carla had talked about this side of things but her narrative is uneven and at times the chronology is confused although she tries to give eual attention to the themes she explores It's not a difficult read and at than 500 pages it's good for a rainy weekend It's not as salacious as I expected and although Carla's indignance and feelings of victimisation are difficult to cope with at times some of her story reads like that of a petulant child tattling to her mother when I contextualise all of these personal annoyances everything falls into place

Rstanding within the convent walls Instead she became enmeshed in a complex system of regulations that drove her to the brink of madness Finally released from her vows she escaped back into the 'real' world A hasty marriage and separation left Carla with a daughter to support With few professional skills to rely on from her years as a nun she turned to an. This would have to be the worst memoir I have ever read and poorly written In the beginning I sympathised with Carla To be the victim of sexual abuse by the hands of a family member is appalling and can leave mental scaring But I could not come to terms with her actions later in life as a prostitute To set up a parlour in the same house your daughters are living in I think is disgusting She became self obsessed towards the end and I don’t think highly of her as a parentSo noI would not recommend this to anyone
