Introduction

The Smoking Nun is a timely story of passion, love, conflict and betrayal. Set in the era of the Civil Rights Movement and Vietnam War, this memoir recounts one complex woman’s love of God, suffering humanity, and a man. A story within a story, Temkin unveils a secret she held for years and never thought she would tell, but does so within a larger story of meaningfulness, hope, and an unending trust in the adventure of life. She asks the reader this question: Would you consider her secret a # Me Too story? Temkin no longer smokes cigarettes and is no longer a nun, but she maintains all of her belief in the holiness of the human heart, her daring spirit, and her quest for connectedness with God and the wide diversity of human persons.
