Text Þ Õ Jacqueline Yallop

Evening she agrees And so begins the horrifying and passionate love affair that will deafen the heavens and define her life tempting her into duplicity Obedience is a powerful exploration of one woman's struggle to reconcile her aching need to be loved with her fear of God's wrat Mother Catherine sighed She would never shake off the idea that Bernard was miraculously stupidSister Bernard was one of the most frustrating characters I have ever had to read and Mother Catherine's sentiments were the most enjoyable line in the book I realized then that Yallop must have been completely aware that she was creating an exasperating character

Jacqueline Yallop Õ Obedience Reader

ObedienceMmunity that she betrayed decades ago Sister Bernard relives her life during the warAt thirty Sister Bernard can hear the voice of God strident furious and personal When a young Nazi soldier a member of the German occupying forces asks her to meet him in the church in secret one Obedience was short book but still contained an intense gripping story The story switches back and forth between Nazi occupied France during WWII and France in the present day The story is also told from a few different perspectives but the story is mostly about Sister Bernard The book is about Bernard's short affair with a Nazi solider during the war and the conseuences it caused The present day story is of a 93 year old Bernard who along with two other nuns are being evacuated from an old rundown convent We see she still struggles with what happened over sixty years ago Even with all the flashbacks to the war I still felt like we didn't see everything and this was on purpose I suspect After I finished the book I didn't feel like I had a good grip on that part of the story And with the present day story some of the story lines almost felt unfinished but not in a frustrating way We are left to fill in the blanks A lot of the religious stuff flew over my head but one of the things I got is that Sister Bernard felt god had been speaking to her and then he stopped She spent many a year trying to figure out why he stopped what she had done etc I felt bad for her but I'm not sure why I felt bad for her – because she thought god had been speaking to her or because she felt abandoned by him Most of the people she came across in the story seemed to be doing the former A well told story definitely It was a fast read but did not lack in uality
