Expected and Unexpected

Funny and Bittersweet

Lonliness, longing, love

The Lady Walks at Night

The fog brushes the ocean
With seagull wings.
The moon is half-way hidden
In cranberry clouds.
The Lady walks at night
In thoughts of deep green seas
Of dark-skinned men
Of endless dreams
That never materialize



a novel by Joan Albarella


What do you get when modern-day nuns take in a punk rocker amnesiac and at the same time  try to save the
daughter of a space alien who speaks  in television cliches?

A lot of laughs and a good read! Is it a mystery? Is it a science fiction novel?  Or is it simply a study in faith? By the time you've finished  Sister Amnesia, you may decide that it's all of the above and more.
