Author Loweecey discusses "Back in the Habit"

Amherst author Alice Loweecey touches upon her experience as a nun in her second novel, "Back in the Habit."

Loweecey discussed the work at length with WBFO and AM970's Mike Desmond, telling him the work is less biographical and more a murder/mystery which touches upon some of the issues confronting the religious today.

Loweecey explains that nuns "come from all different backgrounds" and are not represented by the "Hollywood stereotypes" portrayed by Julie Andrews and Sally Fields.
