Description

This novel, based on a true story, illustrates the life of a brilliant nun, consecrated to her God and her community of sisters, who never forgets the Polish-American family she left behind. The story begins in 1936 with Sister Edmunda's appointment as the Secretary General of her order of primarily Polish American sisters, many from the anthracite coal region of eastern Pennsylvania. Six years later, elected to the office of Mother General, her special interests are the Order's newest missions in southern Brazil, the opening of hospitals there and in the U. S., and most importantly, the spiritual growth of her fellow sisters and daughters in Christ. The mentoring and care of her much younger sister Mary and her family is a deeply emotional aspect of the novel. A special relationship develops between Sister Edmunda and one of her nephews, struggling to find his own faith and possible entrance into a religious order while serving in Japan during the Korean War. Major disagreements with her successor end the story in a totally unexpected way.
