Book Reviews for 'The Novice is Missing . . . and so is the Convent Bike!


‘This story reads as a hilarious version of “The Sound of Music”! I like the idea of an

opportunity for “fairness” given in the footnotes and I’m sure that will be appreciated

as an indication of Katey’s goodwill and kindness.’

Pastor Fergus Ryan, Founder of Trinity Church Network, Dublin, Ireland


‘Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down! The whole telling of the tale comes

over in a very warm, human way, with great humour and honesty. I must say I did feel

sorry for ‘Sister Peter’! But even there, there was reconciliation and warmth eventually.’

‘Sister Caris’, a real-life character in the story, UK


‘Katey shares an amazing story of her search for and encounters with the living God.

You will be amazed and amused as you read her story. A very good read indeed!’

Rev. Noel Mills, Rivers Meeting Church, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim, Ireland


‘An engaging and candid account of a remarkable journey; when broken humanity,

with all its rough edges, comes into the dazzling light of God’s grace and acceptance, the

result is something truly beautiful … healing beyond imagination.’

Julie Maria Peace, Author of ‘A Song in the Night’, South Yorkshire, England
