Nun s the word Ya heard Seriously though I love nun themed stories films booksyou name it Even fake nuns fascinate me Remember Nuns on the Run and all the Sister Act movies Exactly They re hip devoted sweet stern selfless and wellsometimes down right scaryI fell in love with the film adaptation of Godden s Black Narcissus many years ago and vowed to read the book because there were certain aspects of the plot that I didn t really understand Now that I ve read it I am even fascinated and enad with the concept this book A small order of nuns are invited high into the Himalayas to set up a convent in a rundown palace that once served as a king s harem At first daunted by the altitude pagan mountain people and the unmatched beauty of the peaks they re eventually lulled into the spirit of the palace As their spirituality wanes each sister is tried out by their own secret desires Godden laid the plot and different perspectives in a wonderful way You never knew what was around the corner but you were constantly reminded that something sinister was afoot Sometimes it seemed to him that the house had a bad wild life of its own the impression of its evil lingered in its name in its atmosphere Because most of her books are out of print I find myself always on the lookout when I visit bookstores and thrift shops I ve been pretty fortunate In fact just this week I was fortunate to catch the movie adaptation of her book The Battle of the Villa Fiorita on TCM starring Maureen O Hara and then later that week I found a vintage copy at a local nonprofit bookstore What a coincidence I think it s safe to say that Godden is golden
