"Years ago, Old Earth sent forth sisters and brothers into the vast dark of the prodigal colonies armed only with crucifixes and iron faith. Now, the sisters of the Order of Saint Rita are on an interstellar mission of mercy aboard Our Lady of Impossible Constellations, a living, breathing ship which seems determined to develop a will of its own. When the order receives a distress call from a newly-formed colony, the sisters discover that the bodies and souls in their care--and that of the galactic diaspora--are in danger. And not from void beyond, but from the nascent Central Governance and the Church itself"--

First half seemed to be just setup; getting to know the characters, the background scenario, and the concept of a living biological ship (didn't quite sell me, but was close). Once the mendicant duties of the Sisters of the Order of Saint Rita are called into play, this novella's appeal kicks in. I'm looking forward to further adventures of the nuns aboard Our Lady of Impossible Constellations.
