    One thought on “Sacred & Profane”

    1. A brilliant book that had me gripped to the last page. A nun and a young woman prisoner thousands of miles apart but linked in a macabre way. Shocking and mesmerising. I picked it up in a secondhand shop in Cornwall by chance and couldn't believe I'd found such an incredible book.

    2. This book was amazing! there is character development and self-discovering all along the way. The book is mainly presenting rough reality from the prison and church, but in a interesting way. The plot starts and develops graduately, the authors has built it very well, it was a real page turner!The finish is great and the perfect unexpected element that a finish of a book needs. I recommend this book to anyone !
