Peg: A Work of Fiction
By: R. Carolyn Klein
About the Book
She was a child of the forties, living a sheltered life under the strict control of her overbearing mother. Her young life was shaped by parochial school and then her time at a small convent in the New Jersey countryside.
Peg’s first introduction into the real world as a young nun occurred during a tumultuous, transformative time in U.S. history when the world was being shaped by the Civil Rights Movement, the Women’s Movement, and the Vietnam War, and everything she thought she knew about life and her faith was being called into question.
Peg’s coming of age story is about discovering who we are and who we want to become. It is a tale of overcoming destructive, ineffective life patterns that hold us back from reaching our full potential and living a full, satisfying life.
