A life-long Protestant, Norris gives insight into the lives of Benedictine monks in this absorbing story of her decade as an oblate at a monastery. Through her very open eyes, we move to a better understanding of the cloistered life: ceremonies, daily tasks and rituals, desires. Much like the monastic life, this is a "no frills" recording--no music, no introduction. Winger's distinct, regional accent adds authenticity. Above all, this recording succeeds in explaining that our existence can be enriched by paying attention to the spiritual lives of monastics. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG 96]
