Book Review: Sister Jaguar's Journey

Sister Jaguar's JourneySister Jaguar's Journey by Judy Bisignano
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sister Judy Bisignano, a Dominican nun is the focal point of this book. It follows her life’s journey as she searches for meaning in life, meaning that will help her overcome her self-doubt and self-rejection. She ultimately finds what she was subconsciously looking for in the unlikeliest of places: the Amazonian Rainforest among a remote tribe of natives. They helped her learn about compassion, self-acceptance, about the stewardship towards the earth and the inner peace that we all possess.
The first parts of the book detail her journey through the difficulties of becoming a nun as well as the abuse suffered in her personal home life. The fact that Sister Judy still managed to eventually put all this behind her and strive to work to help children and others is an amazing feat. She did not let her past weigh her down and even struggling to overcome it, she managed to do good. An empowering story to read during International Women’s month, or any day of the year. Well written, not too many glaring grammar errors.
