As the Vietnam
War rages on – an inner battle is being fought on another
Against her father’s
wishes, Angelina Marcello makes the decision to join a convent.
Her desire to join the sisterhood becomes the driving force in her
is a teacher who feels her purpose is to serve a higher power. She
leaves her teaching position to join St. Bridges Convent in Minneapolis.
JoAnne Baird is
heartbroken after her fiancé marries someone else while serving
in Vietnam. She now feels she should become a nun.
As a raging war
threatens to destroy a nation, three women’s lives are bound
together by one purpose. The simple, peaceful life they crave, however,
is filled with turmoil, for the convent is filled with its own conflict.
Habits allows the reader to experience the heartaches and challenges
of three special women. Debbie Macomber’s voice is already
well-known in the romance genre. Through the poignant voice of Trini
Alvarado, I gained an even deeper appreciation of this accomplished
author's exceptional work. Very highly recommended.
