In 1963 Karol “Suds” Jackowski was a fun-loving, hard-drinking high school girl who prayed earnestly that if a vocational “call” from Heaven to join the sisterhood ever came, the call would be for someone else. Thus Karol was as surprised as anyone when she listened to the small voice inside her heart and joined the Sisters of the Holy Cross in South Bend, Indiana, exchanging ratted hair for a cropped coif and headgear, friends and family for sisterhood and community, and fifths of vodka with high school buddies for happy hour at the convent. FOREVER AND EVER, AMEN: BECOMING A NUN IN THE SIXTIES is a humorous, exuberant account of Karol’s spiritual growth and struggles in becoming a nun during one of the most volatile periods in the history of Catholic sisterhood.
