AYDY Press President Tom Bulmer announced today the release of the autobiography of G.L. (Geraldine) Graber entitled Nuns Don’t Cry. It is the life story of a woman’s commitment to service of human kind from her life as a teenager entering the church to present day where she lives in Chad building schools for children far away from her own roots.
“Before I started reading, I questioned the title. Nuns may or may not cry but only my own mother did not really cry. Within pages, I became committed to sharing Geraldine’s love for humanity as best I could.” Bulmer said. “It is like having your mother, your sister, a good friend and your inner self talking to you all at the same time.”
The book wonderfully depicts the humanist hope and commitment of a young girl as she bravely enters a closed world of faith and ritual. Discipline attempts to overcome the natural curiosity of an emerging intelligent and sexual woman. But it does not do so for long. Even being forced into mental hospitals could not dissuade or deter her from her inner destiny. The author now serves children in Chad while she also battles breast cancer. Although best treated elsewhere, Geraldine has finally found peace and acceptance where she is. “Tell the rich of the midnight sighing of the poor” Graber quoted. “That would be my work and that would be my joy” she said.
All royalties go to continuing Geraldine’s work in Africa.
“Geraldine’s observations and choices in life are inspirational. It is an honour to present such a well written and moving true story. I bet my Mom is crying now.” Bulmer concluded.
