Rezension:

"The fact that Ruby Constad emerges so strong and devoid of self-pity makes her one of the most generous and complete of modern heroines" ( The Times)

"An original talent clears the hurdle of a second novel with pathos and humour" ( Guardian)

"Miss Tremain does something to restore my confidence in the vitality of the English novel... Letter to Sister Benedicta should be seen as a triumph of the human spirit over the afflictions which beset us" (Auberon Waugh)

Vom Verlag:

Fat and fifty, educated only to be a wife and mother, Ruby Constad has reached a point of crisis. Her husband, Leon, lies in a nursing home after a stroke that has left him paralysed; her grown-up children are gone. In her anguish Ruby appeals for help to a half-remembered figure from her colonial Indian girlhood - Sister Benedicta. Gradually the events leading up to Leon's stroke are revealed and a woman emerges whose capacity to love, hope and understand are far greater than she realises.
