The Secret Ladder, by Noreen Mackey, Darton Longman & Todd, €16.05.
The concept of a young girl joining an enclosed order of nuns seems utterly alien in today's Ireland. So it is all the more strange to find a book written by a successful lawyer who was a contemplative Carmelite - not once, but twice.
The book opens in Luxembourg, where Noreen Mackey was a lawyer to the European Court of Justice in 1993.
