    This is a rather strange book that I had a hard time getting into, but ended up really liking a lot Three nuns between the ages of late forties to seventies have been living for a very long time on a remote island without any contact with the outside world Their version of Catholicism blends in nature worship and mythology Their daily lives consist of, in a

    I had never heard of Marele Day before hearing of this novel on the knitting community Ravelry It was mentioned in one discussion of novels with knitting as a theme Many participants recommended this novel, so I got curious.It s a very weird novel and difficult to describe Three nuns live peacefully on a remote and deserted island together with their sheep T

    Lambs of God gifts its readers with lush imagery, memorable characters, and a pervading undercurrent of myth and magic.It wasn t a story I was expecting to like, not only because of its religious setting, but because once I started, it took about 50 pages before I was fully settled into its world It s slow paced, full of vivid descriptions, slightly contrived

    A highly unusual and thought provoking tale about the nature of faith, belief and religion 3 feral nuns, the last of an island community, have their solitude broken by the arrival of a priest who has plans for their home What the nuns then do is both outrageous and understandable Day captures the world of these nuns, enclosed for decades, and their little nonsenses

    Exceedingly quirky and weird Frequently hilarious, often squirm inducing, but it had depth that surprised me It features three forgotten nuns in a crumbling ruin of a monastery, lots of sheep, and a priest who stumbles across them in his quest to turn the property into a holiday resort Oh, and knitting Lots of knitting.Also I seem to be continuing my recent recurrin
