Holy Days – Joy Cowley


Chosen by Suzy

A motherless boy seeks solace in an old convent and the three nuns who reside there.

✎ “A gentle and lovely book, tinged with sadness and hard family realities.  Paired with Navigator, Joy Cowley’s memoir, Holy Days is an even more beautiful.” – Suzy

✎ “The imagery is well developed in this book and I found myself able to see the village and the convent straight away.  A heartwarming story of a young boy’s deepening relationship with three nuns and the adventure they plan for him.  This book is beautifully written and filled with the warmth of love and affection. A feel good story that leaves you smiling.” – Jo

✎ “This adult novel has the same calm, accomplished style of Cowley’s children’s books. With a wonderful plot and the gorgeous Brian, I couldn’t help but fall in love with it.” – Rachel
