"History is being written by those who weren't there and don't know," Blanchard complains. Her memoir, realistically depicting an era, summarizes her life as a strong-willed child, idealistic nun and, finally, a keen critic of the Catholic hierarchy. She claims its greatest failing is its stubborn reluctance to treat women as equals. Blanchard writes without bitterness but with depth, insight and wry humor that just might make you laugh out loud.
