Author and dream counselor Rose Gordy spent thirteen years of her early life as a nun effectively cut off from the world. In spite of the conditions within the Church, she managed to leave and make a life for herself including getting married and having three sons. Through her experiences in the convent as well as decades of teaching in the classroom, she has woven compelling stories and poems honoring the lives lost and changed forever by adversity.

Rose Gordy's convent-themed book, "Stairs to the Attic," is a collection of poetry down to earth yet otherworldly, a book which instinctually eschews the conventional. Amidst the hundreds of adventures within these pages, readers will find themselves transported to places and feelings familiar and fantastic. Nothing captures an experience like the timeless rhythmical synergy of song & speech that we call Poetry. The poem which gives this book its title, Stairs to the Attic, paints a picture of youth restrained but always one step away from the truth. Will a group of former nuns find out the secret their convent held from them? What could happen when these liberated women return decades later full of latent curiosity? Other poems delve into the dreamscape, the synchronistic, the blood bonds, the shadow memories, the maternal instincts, the harkening forward and the eyeful. Filled with 42 original photographs and over 150 poems this unexpected book will break the proverbial mold.
