This is a wonderful book. The entire text is letters of Sr. Mara Celeste to her father, Galileo. It gives a wonderful insight during a very dark and dangerous time in history. And yet, Sister trusts God so implicitly. Trusting that He will provide for her, Galileo and her religious community. I also recommend reading "Galileo's Daughter" to understand the other side of Galileo's story. That book is also a great read.
