Abstract:

Just as Jane Christmas decides to enter a convent in mid-life to find out whether she is "nun material", her long-term partner Colin springs a marriage proposal on her. Determined not to let her monastic dreams be sidelined, Christmas embarks on a year long adventure to four convents-- one in Canada and three in the UK.
