Riassunto: Sister Mary Helen is dismayed when, after the unexpected death of Sister Cecilia, the president of Mount St. Francis College, Sister Patricia is appointed the post. Sister Mary Helen is not in the new president's best graces and feels she surely will be asked to retire. But the chance to volunteer at a drop-in center for abused women and serve on the board quite revives Sister Mary Helen's flagging spirits -- until a young woman who frequents the center is murdered.
Dal retro di copertina:
How do you make God laugh? Tell Him you've got a plan. That's what Sister Mary Helen reminds herself when she sets out to start a new life--as a volunteer in a women's homeless shelter. A savvy octogenarian with an adventurous streak, Mary Helen is no stranger to the shady side of San Francisco's hilly streets. So when a young resident at the Refuge shelter is found dead, Mary Helen makes it her business to solve the murder. Soon this lady of the Order gets herself into a holy mess involving corrupt local politicians, a prostitution ring, and a tangled web of private-eyes, police officers, and the 'refugees' themselves. Mary Helen calls upon her beloved sisters at St. Francis College for salvation, but it's going to take a lot of prayers to protect Mary Helen from the dangerous characters--and shocking confessions--that come in her wake...
"O'Marie twines the strands of these disparate lives with humor and sympathy."-- Publishers Weekly
