Sr. .Eve is back with another mystery that was pretty interesting. She has come back to the monastery to make some hard decisions. Should she continue her life as a nun? Will the church ever accept her even though she is a woman?
St. Eve is looking forward to attending a conference that she finds very intriguing. It is about The Blue Nun who is a sister from Spain. The Blue Nun is said to have mystical powers that allowed her to convert a Native American tribe in the 1600s.im sure that was a hard feat to accomplish and I can't imagine how she was welcomed at first. Did the native Americans fear her ? That was a very intriguing topic and I liked how the author pulled history into the story which made it more interesting. Before the conference can even begin a murder happens. Who is murdered? What is stolen that could be vital to the Blue Nun? The race is on to find out who the killer is. I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story. It was a nice read and I look forward to more adventures with St.Eve. As a side note, the story of The Blue Nun is true. I highly recommend you look her up. It is fascinating to read about her and how she struggled to be accepted by the church.
I loved that St. Eve rides a motorcycle . It reminded me of the show "The Flying Nun." She was always getting into messes, but found her way out of them. The struggle St. Eve has with her faith is very emotional and I found her journey for answers very heartfelt and real.
"Sometimes nuns and priests and monks choose a different path later in their lives. It doesn't mean they broke their vows or left the order . It could mean they received guidance leading them into new areas of service."
I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild for an honest review.
