Chapter 2 of The Convent in on line.
My apologies to all who think this story is developing too slowly. There will be several more chapters of back story before the action will move forward faster.
As I've stated in my profile, I post chapters as they are ready rather than waiting until an entire story is completed. I hope this method of posting is not upsetting.
There are a lot of necessary details that John, Mary and readers need to learn before the story reveals what carries on behind the serene facade of the Convent.
The next chapter spells out the Code and the Goal of the Order but later chapters disclose the controverted way they are carried out and might just be deemed sinister.
