An enlightening and--for some--spiritually fulfiilling memoir by Marina De Berg (born in Helsinki in 1926) who was a ballet dancer who also appeared in seven motion pictures (1948-51). Soon after she initially began to dance, she entered a French Trappist convent for nearly three years. "This book is Marina de Berg's simple, detailed account of the daily life of the convent, with its harsh demands and its delights."
SUPERIOR CONDITION internally & externally. The dust jacket is bright with slight peripheral rubbing.
