ABSTRACT/SUMMARY

My mother always wanted a nun in the family.  After my sister failed to stay in the teaching order she entered, my mother put the pressure on me.  I decided to make a retreat with 5 of my friends who all wanted to become nuns and another girl who thought we were nutsóbut who saw a retreat as a free vacation.  After many mistakes, which tried the patience of the nuns, and much soul searching, there were some surprising choices made.
