Reseña del editor
Jane Kelly gives a unique glimpse of what goes on behind convent walls. She tells of her journey from birth to her decision to enter the convent and details her 58 years in the convent. Culminating to a difficult and painful decision to leave the convent. Her choice was based on her desire to continue to minister to the poor and homeless at Plowshares Community Dining Room which she founded in 1983. Her heart would not allow her to leave her poor and homeless friends to seek a comfortable life at the mother house in San Francisco. Sister Jane's heart is with the homeless her desire is to spend her life with the poor. This work could not be done at the Mother house. She realizes that she has a prime opportunity to serve the homeless and poor in Ukiah, CA. She states I will be here until they carry me out in a body bag.

When I reached Part 4, there seemed to be a junction missing. I was unsure how we got to this point. There seemed to be a vital missing link in the telling of the story. I went back and reread the last 10 pages or so a few times, wondering if I had just missed "it". Alas no.
In Part 4 we discover that Sister Kelly has had some sort of decline that eventually leads her to be in a position where she must leave her community or leave the convent. She chooses the latter. I felt that the reason seemed to be glossed over or condensed to such a point, that it no longer made alot of sense to me.
I pondered how we went from an injury in hospital with a reason for the blood alcohol levels making sense, to being put in a facility to access her mental capacity and possibilities for rehabilitation or further treatment. It felt to me, that there must have been more to the story.
I then realised the reason that the author spent so much time setting the scene of her good works and deeds. It seems it was meant to reflect the miscarriage of justice that she felt she suffered at the hands of the church when she was put in the position of having to choose to leave the Convent or leave the community she had worked in for 58 years. Most reasonable readers would feel a similar sense of offence when you look at all the things she had achieved and then to be dismissed without a second thought.
I thought the book was wrongly titled and I see no reason why the book was called X Rated Nun. The term wasn't in the book and nor was her behaviour X Rated in the typical sense of the term.
I was alarmed that this woman was a teacher given the poor spelling and punctuation in the book. Clearly someone had used spell check without reading what they were checking. Words that are actually words, were incorrectly used in place of the actual word that should have appeared in its place. To be blunt, very sloppy proof reading and editing.
All in all, not a terrible book but one that really needs to be re-edited and proof read properly.
The Kindle version of this book had at least one typo on every page. Several times, the wrong word was used.
Save your money and your time--don't bother with the book.
