Product description

Product Description

This is the true story of one woman’s journey from the sweeping coastlines of New Zealand to the barren plains of Southern Spain, from youthful hope to deep despair, and from sin to reparation.

As a free-spirited university student, Maria’s life stretches before her like a wonderful adventure. It is New Zealand in the mid-seventies and Maria wants to make music, serve the Lord and spread her wings far beyond the safe familiarity of her homeland.

Then, the unthinkable happens: a callous act resulting in an impossible choice that shapes the rest of her life. Heartbroken and in need of a miracle, Maria seeks absolution as a Carmelite nun in the dark, silent cloisters of the Palmarian Catholic Church, one of the world’s most secretive and controversial religious orders.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and found it hard to put down. Being a non-Catholic, I found it hard to grasp what Maria went through in her journey to find peace. She is one very brave lady to have stayed in a silent order for 8 years! I am finding it hard to comment on this book in the way it deserves to be reviewed; however, I would recommend it highly. Although I have since read a couple of fiction novels, this one has stayed with me.

This was the first memoir I have ever read and I am so glad I have come across it. This book opened a window into the world that up until now was a complete mystery to me. And yet, the problems the author faced were very much human and relatable. These two factors made the memoir fascinating to read. The raw emotion of this book pulled me in from page one and I found that I couldn't put it down until the very last page. What I found the most inspiring was the author's strength of character and positive outlook. Even in the face of adversity, she never gave up and strived to move forward, to follow her calling, to come to terms with the past. The memoir was a real eye opener about the way of life I knew nothing about. Thanks to this very personal and moving account, it was as if I was able to glimpse this unfamiliar world through the author's eyes. I would recommend this book to everyone who enjoys powerful, emotional and beautifully written stories of strength and survival.

I was reading another book at the time I started this. I just had a quick dip in it to take a look-the fact that the author is an ex-nun intrigued me and I wanted to know more. I just had to keep on reading and I couldn't put it down! I finished it in a couple of days. She has an amazing story to tell, but wow does she know how to tell it and keep you engrossed. It's beautifully written. So emotional, so powerful.

Profound. A memoir which will really make you think, and feel. You can't fail to be touched by this and remember it for a long time after you've read it. An amazing memoir which absolutely blew me away.

One of the best books I have read. Gripping, pacy, enthralling, almost a thriller and it's all true. Wow!!! What a life Maria Hall has had. A courageous woman. An inspiring woman. And a gifted writer to boot. Reparation is a must read.

I admire Maria's honesty about her quest to redeem herself and find meaning in her life. Would recommend to anyone interested in reading a well written autobiography.
