Helen Prejean's audiobook bubbles with levity, enthusiasm, and inspiration. In her soft Louisiana drawl, she describes her experiences while a novice with the Congregation of St. Joseph as a "boot camp for the Brides of Christ." By the time she was fully professed, Vatican II in 1962 had changed her life. She blossomed under the new church paradigm while remaining committed to her vows. Successful but not happy, she began searching for her place in God's plan and recounts how her call to serve the underserved hit "like a bolt of lightning." She then began her life's work: ending the death penalty. Listeners don't have to be Catholic to recognize an extraordinary individual who is still fighting for social justice at the age of 80.
