Marion Dante always knew, that as her mother's 'sin offering', she would be a nun. At the age of fourteen, she entered a convent... Years later, wrestling with doubts and misery, she embarked on the long and terrifying road to freedom. Like a caged bird she clung to her prison bars. Wearing a short skirt, ordering a cup of tea in a cafe, everyday conversation with a stranger, were mountains to climb. More frighteningly - if she dropped the habit, who then would she be? What would remain of Marion Dante if she broke out of her protective shell?
