    Overall, the story interested me. Marion Dante's life is on display, and I admire her courage at having led such a life and, more so, having shared it with us. That said, I find the book needs better organizing, better structure. A lot of times I was confused by sudden jumps in time, or the start of a chapter being so far ahead from the last one.

    Very interesting story on the life of a Ex-Nun who became dissillusioned with the convent life, she also talks about how she coped with life as a lay person for the first time.
