Sister Agatha Leach, one of the most well-known and much loved members of the Bar Convent community in York, has collaborated with author Richard Newman to tell her life story. It will come as no surprise to those who have met her that Sister Agatha's life is quite as unforgettable as she is.

Born as Shirley Leach, raised in a 23 bedroom mansion in the North Downs countryside and once presented to the Royal Court of King George VI as an eligible debutante, Sister Agatha left behind her life of luxury to answer the calling of God.

Her remarkable tale is told in 'A Nun's Story', published by John Blake and now available in paperback. The book details Agatha's astonishing life, including her heart-breaking decision to separate from the fiance she loved, and the miraculous meeting on a train that rescued the Bar Convent from the brink of financial disaster.

After she relates parts of her amazing life, she will be available to sign copies of 'A Nun's Story.'
