This book was a unexpected delight. Anne Rice spells out her Catholic reconversion in a moving way. The detail of her early Catholic life is beautiful. I admit I have not read many of her other works but after reading this book I want to read them. She outlines how she was lured away from her faith under a false intellectualism. She describes a love of her faith and her deep felt physical reaction to mass. Ann Rice explains how her Vampire novels were her way of working through her own spiritual demons. This book is a wonderful journey of her life as she reconnects with her Catholic faith of her youth and realizes she never really left. A definite must read especially if you didn't know how deeply Catholic Anne Rice has been. She has also authored many Catholic novels as well. I definitely recommend this book.
