When life hurts, Beauty Noticed is a wholesome antidote. Catherine R. Seeley's collection of poems about creation, conscience, change and hope gives voice to the experiences of everyday living, balanced with the soothing balms of nature, promise and empowerment.
Reminiscent of Mary Oliver's contemplative eye for nature and Joan Chittister's advocacy for human rights, Beauty Noticed interrupts the blur of living with reminders of virtue, healing and hope.

Mea Culpa Book Cover

Mea Culpa
An old classmate's appearance on a television crime show finds a group of former nuns suddenly drawn back into each other's lives because they once shared convent life with her. Tracked down by a private investigator and no longer under the restraints of convent silence and secrecy, each woman shares from her long ago past in the convent with this woman. Unwittingly, what each reveals to the investigator begins to uncover a heinous crime, threatens to visit scandal on a diocese, lures an elderly Superior to consider suicide, and now imperils the life of each former nun.
