Okay, I know, it's a mythical Roman Catholic abbey in England, still, I wonder how many have read it. Believe it or not, this book was one of the things that brought me to monasticism. The Rule of St. Benedict (His feast day is tomorrow, by the way) is clearly explained, along with just living the life of a monastic. This is a book that I recommend to anyone that is even thinking about becoming a monk.

"Stanbrook Abbey was the model for Brede Abbey in Rumer Godden's 1969 novel, In This House of Brede. Godden, who had asked the nuns of Stanbrook for prayers when her elder daughter was facing a risky pregnancy, gifted the Abbey with a portion of the copyright on the novel."
