Synopsis: Book Summary In 14th century Flanders, a beguine Sister is assaulted while sleeping in her room in the walled compound. The intruder is driven off before she is harmed, but the consequences of the attempted rape are great. The beguines, a religious community of women, teach young children and many are boarders. If their parents learn of the attack, they might withdraw their children from the school, endangering the community’s livelihood. Grand Mistress Beatrice, their leader, begs her sisters to keep silent about the attempted abduction--but will they? The frightened Sister doubts her calling and becomes attracted to the father of one of her pupils. Their parish priest sees them walking together unchaperoned. During a religious procession in the town, a devout beguine cries out that she has seen Jesus’ face. She faints, calling His name. The townspeople wonder: has one of those beguines truly had a vision from God? Or is she simply a madwoman? The priest denounces the beguines and implores his bishop to punish them. Instead, the bishop asks the abbot of a nearby Cistercian order to investigate the community. Beatrice is severely chastised and is ordered to punish any sister who has broken her vows, but she feels herself responsible.

About the Author: Molly Connally is a writer by nature and by trade. She worked for the federal government for over ten years as a writer and editor and developed her creative side. She designed a poster promoting “The Student Guide” that was very popular with parents, students and financial aid administrators. She wrote parts of “The Student Guide” for several years and created a cover for one Guide that grabbed students’ attention. After retirement, for about six years she wrote book reviews for “School Library Journal,” focusing on books to interest high school students. Then, on a visit to Belgium and Holland, she discovered the beguines and their importance to women in 12th to 15th century Flanders. The result is “Sisters Between,” a work of fiction about their lives.
