Sisters of the Southern Cross - Jean Grainger - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of Sisters of the Southern Cross:

A nun takes on a man with a gun to save a Bundagugli mission.

My favorite Jean Grainger quote from the book:

"Surely the people could embrace the Christian message without having their culture annihilated at the same time."

Questions to ponder while reading Sisters of the Southern Cross:

Are you who you say you are?

What is your vocation?

My review of the book Sisters of the Southern Cross:

Highly entertaining and so much fun to read!

Sister Claire is a great character.

I doubt I could handle a habit in that heat.
