'The Scent of God' by Beryl Singleton Bissell

"The Scent of God by Beryl Singleton Bissell is a graceful memoir by a fine new literary talent. The author takes us on her journey to stay true to God through her childhood, her years as a nun in a Poor Clares monastery and her relationship with a priest. Fate keeps calling her away from the monastery to her parents and the parish of a priest she can't help but fall in love with. I couldn't put the book down as I anxiously awaited the reconciliation of her love for God with her love for the priest."

From Diana, who listens to KNOW in Minnesota
