    LOVE this book!

    Since I read this book years ago it has been given away several times, once to a person who read it so often it was falling apart. So I gave her mine. Now I have a new one, this marvelous tale of love, courage, fidelity, reconciliation, forgiveness. Very recommended for book clubs. I have read most of Rumer Godden, she is always wonderful. Her books for children are actually "all ages" books. Enjoy this book!

    Sensitive & Moving

    'In This House of Brede' is a carefully crafted narrative about the nuns in a Benedictine monastery in the late 1950's and early 1960's. The characters are complete and nuanced. Rumer Godden is a superb writer and this book is her masterpiece.

    I highly recommend this very satisfying read, for women who love a good story as well as real and complex characters.

    This is a beautifully written novel about the spiritual and personal lives of women inside a convent. The changing seasons of the year and the church calendar are described together, and with them the inner struggles and inner growth of the community. The more I reflect on this book, the more I realize how richly layered are its themes, just a few of which are: searching for what is truly meaningful, knowing your own heart, making difficult choices, how change is inevitable in our lives, what comes of resisting our inner voice as well as listening to it, how we express our spirituality in different ways, what is human perfection and can it be achieved on earth, how can individuals contribute to their community even if they are not outstandingly gifted, etc, etc. I am not a Catholic but I was very moved by the dedication of these women to lives of infinite hardship and infinite blessing.

    My favorite book of all time

    I love this book. It's a classic. I've read it twice and will reread it again and again in the future. It's very descriptive and I believe an honest portrayal of life in a monastery with all the joys, trials, tribulations and problems that go on everywhere. I love the characters. Each nun is an individual with her own unique personality which the author describes so well. Monastic life is, I believe, portrayed realistically and honestly. Definitely a classic!
