Anita Mathias writes of her Catholic childhood in India, and her large, eccentric extended family in Mangalore, India; her rebellion and atheism as a teenager in her Himalayan boarding school, St. Mary’s Convent, Nainital; and her abrupt religious conversion whereupon she entered Mother Teresa’s convent in Calcutta as a novice.
Later essays explore the dualities of her life as a writer, mother and Christian in the United States -- Domesticity and Art, Writing and Prayer, and the experience of being “an alien and stranger” on the earth, desperately seeking roots.
