Audie Award Finalist, Inspirational, Faith-Based Nonfiction, 2016
With humor and opinions aplenty, a woman embarks on an unconventional quest to see if she is meant to be a nun.
Just as Jane Christmas decides to enter a convent in mid-life to find out whether she is “nun material”, her long-term partner Colin, suddenly springs a marriage proposal on her. Determined not to let her monastic dreams be sidelined, Christmas puts her engagement on hold and embarks on an extraordinary year-long adventure to four convents - one in Canada and three in the UK. In these communities of cloistered nuns and monks, she shares - and at times chafes and rails against - the silent, simple existence she has sought all of her life. Christmas takes this spiritual quest seriously, but her story is full of the candid insights, humorous social faux pas, profane outbursts, and epiphanies that make her books so relatable and popular. And Then There Were Nuns offers a seldom-seen look inside modern cloistered life, and it is sure to ruffle more than a few starched collars among the ecclesiastical set.

Enchanting Story with Lots of Humor
This is the very best audiobook I have listened to this far.
When Jane enters a service late and drops her paperwork at the feet of another nun who is not too thrilled :)
The main character, Jane.
I was inspired by the entire book.
I have a penchant for stories about the religious life of nuns, and in fact used to visit the convent when I was a child as I had great aunts that were nuns. It always seemed to present itself as such a fun and secretive life.
