I really didn’t enjoy this. Can’t help but compare it to The Corner That Held Them. I see I came off as a bit negative on Corner, but at least it felt very realistic. This one is fakery. And I wasn’t expecting quite so much lesbianism. No one appreciates strong, central female characters more than I do; and I can respect what the author must have been trying to do by including not one single male character at all. But come on. Where were the priests in all this? Who was saying mass before Marie blasphemously took over? Weren’t the male leaders of the Church giving her a hard time?
