"The Green That Never Died" follows one woman's journey in becoming a nun and finding herself. After entering the convent at age 18, Rose Gordy grew up within the confines of the Roman Catholic Church and the dictates of the Holy Order. While the world was undergoing radical transformation in the 1960's, she was effectively sequestered and remained innocent of the sins of a tempestuous America. But revolutionary events, from JFK's demise to the Moon Landings, nevertheless broke through the veil and exposed her to the outside awakening.
Read chapters such as "The Sacred Vow of Chastity," "The Winter of My Final Depression,"
The convent culture changed so slowly that is was like traveling back in time... Through a series of lost letters, profound dreams, insightful poems and key memories, learn how Rose Gordy kept the core of her being green and fertile until one fateful day she decided to rejoin the "World, the Flesh and the Devil."
