I do wonder what a "Poor Glare Monastery" is -- is this for nuns whose beacons have become dim?

Or should this perhaps be the "Poor Clare Monastery"?

Reminds me of the laughs I get out of seeing restaurants all over the German speaking countries advertising a dish called "Gordon Bleu" when really they mean "Cordon Bleu",
a breaded and fried veal or pork cutlet filled with ham and cheese, or "Spare Rips",
because the German for ribs, "Rippen", is written with p instead of b.

The error was mine and does not appear in the book. It's what I get for putting too much trust in my OCR software and then not double-checking...

Mother Marie Francis was a delightful writer. I read A RIGHT TO BE MERRY in high school and was pleased to see the follow-up FORTH AND ABROAD.

I agree with the above observations. However, I wish the Sisters would have the courage to tell the world the truth about what happened in Roswell.


I would have liked to have been taught by Poor Clares; alas, the Poor Glare sisters were more common when I was young. (I don't remember their order, though. It's probably just as well. I would have formed a prejudice otherwise)
Thanks for the book tip. I'll put that on my list.
