Summary
"At the age of seventeen Pauline Grogan enters the convent and seven years later takes her final vows. At age 29, desecrated and bewildered, she finds herself back within the secular world, having to begin her life all over again. "Beyond the veil" is the sometimes shocking account of how faith survives even its own worst abuse, but it is much more than that. It is the story of a nun who becomes a wife and mother and then, as happiness seems secure, is cast back down into the deepest regions of despair. It is a story that anyone who has ever feared for their personal safety, their sanity, and above all the health and well being of their children, will readily understand. It tells of the small but glorious triumphs of love and faith, in the face of apparently insurmountable odds." -- Back cover

Note
The story of Tauranga Hospital patient, James Lynch is told in the epilogue. Following the death of his parents James lived with his relatives at Te Puna. At the age of fourteen he was electrocuted while visiting the HMS Veronica at the Strand wharf in Tauranga. Physical decline as a result of the electrocution began to impact severely on James' life in 1948 and in 1957 he was admitted to Tauranga Hospital. Pauline Grogan became friends with James and wrote "A view from within" about his life.
