MORNING LIGHT

The diary of Mary-Jo Carmichael of the year spent at the convent boarding school of Saint Angela's with her twin sister, Agnes, this is pretty subdued in interest for the more modern miss, reaches a high point in daring with the prospective dancing of the can-can in the annual entertainment. From a large, Irish-Catholic San Francisco family, Mary-Jo and Agnes were determined to hate boarding school, found they didn't, and record all the excitements and disappointments of the year here (they are all of very minor proportions). Needless to say, a good deal of religion is also worked in, Masses, Confessions, Feast Days, etc.... Kathleen Norris, who once had a firm hand with the fundamentals, has lost all track of her story interest here, and this convent chronology is kittenish at best.
