An errant Duke of Spain who gets the scare of his life. A nun who hurries by the crucifix without looking at it. The woman who steps into missionary work in Buenos Aires when the Jesuits are suppressed. The anonymous author of "Tyborne" collected fourteen intriguing stories related to Roman Cahtolic monks and nuns and published them at the turn of the twenthieth century. Convent Short Stories brings to life the personality of more than one sister, giving the reader a glimpse behind the habit. Read why one sister was nicknamed Sr. "Poor Me". Immerse yourself in the struggles of a devout young man to enter the Trappists when faced with the opposition and even kidnapping by his family. Each story is a jewel highlighting different facets of life for religious prior to 1900. Although the author is anonymous, it is likely that he or she was a religious monastic. The original book was published in London, and it is well known that some Benedictines in England published anonymously. Please be aware that the book is written in the style of the 1800's, and only slight editing has been done to preserve its charm.

I got interested in republishing some of the older classic stories. Each book I do is lovingly edited to make sure there are clickable chapters instead of those horrible ones that are not formatted well for Kindle and don't have chapters. Words are searchable, and you are able to make notes and do everything you can with a well edited book.
