Are there ghosts in the chapel? That's what the newly formed Sisters of the Last Straw must discover when eerie voices are heard in their convent. The Sisters of the Last Straw are a group of misfit nuns who struggle with their problems while seeking to love Jesus more. A fun story that teaches tolerance and forgiveness in the midst of many comic exploits.


This group of misfit nuns are a delightfully flawed and relatable group of characters whose example inspires goodness in children. The silliness and humor of the sisters is not crass or in poor taste....and it keeps the stories entertaining and fun. These are my favorite batch of nuns with "bad habits" who help us be good!
