The ConventBook - 2012
Peach is nineteen and pretty happy with the way things are. She has her university studies,two best friends,her younger sister Stella to look after,and a broken heart to mend. But when she takes a summer job at a cafe in the Old Abbotsford Convent, her idea of who she is takes a sharp turn...into the past. The nuns,orphans and fallen women are long gone when Peach discovers her own deep connection to the place. But as the convent's stories intertwine with her own,Peach is jolted out of her comfort zone. How much does she really want to know? And who will be around when she finds out who she really is? Intensely real, warm and provocative, Maureen McCarthy's The Convent reveals in vivid detail how the chouces we make,and the choices made for us,ripple through time.
