The Nun and the Priest: Love, Celibacy & Passion is a beautifully written memoir based on the life experiences of Father Hugh Brady and Sister Emily McLean. Based on McLean’s journals and Father Brady’s love letters, the author intimately chronicles the interior conflict between her desire to become a Catholic nun to “live only for God to serve others” and the unexpected attraction she feels for the handsome, charismatic Father Hugh Brady. Once this novice and priest confess their true feelings for one other, the mystery of human love unfolds, as do unimaginable tests and trials.
Now, when celibacy for Roman Catholic priests is being questioned as never before, this is an important read for all those who question the manmade edict of celibacy.
In the words of award-winning author Beryl Singleton Bissel, The Nun and the Priest will enrich peoples’ lives as they are drawn into a story of a powerful and lasting human love and deeply moving faith."
