There was not much to Reed’s book, a first-person narrative rewritten by local Boston publishers who knew what would titillate the New England Brahmins without guilt. Her story centered on various penances the nuns allegedly performed, none of which would shock by today’s standards but which were charmingly salacious to her contemporary readers.
