Henceforth, the lot splits to travel in different groups taking different routes, thereby evading the watchful GOE army led by Colonel Acoca. The rest of the story is all about how this journey goes on, taking unpredictable turns.

      Sheldon has proven (again) that he is such a master of dialogues and plot twisting. The characterization of the nuns and their background stories in spaced flashbacks were fun and riveting. I felt the novel getting a bit lewd quite unnecessarily a few times, as it would generally in most Sheldon works. Sidney Sheldon’s sarcasms
      and wit were pretty much present here as well and were amusing. Then, the climax was excellent. I was taken by surprise absolutely. I predicted a tragic end, but Sheldon made me smile with a happy one!!!

      Must say, I liked this novel. It has successfully lived up to my expectations off the master story teller.
