Book Review: The Deliverance of Sister Cecilia
The Deliverance of Sister Cecilia as told to William Brinkley (223 pgs.)
From the very first page, Sister Cecilia’s story is gripping and suspenseful. Through determination and many sacrifices, Cecilia transforms from a simple farm girl to a courageous nun able to outwit the Communists while remaining loyal to her calling. Sister Cecilia’s unique story-telling weaves together amusing stories from her childhood, her call to the religious life, the role she played in defying Communism, and her love for the Catholic faith into a beautiful and inspiring adventure. This remarkable true story will transport you back over 50 years to Catholic Slovakia, a time that was charming and simple, yet at the hands of the Communists, became dangerous and deadly.
