A search for Sister Simone Campbell's writings resulted in my discovery of Jo Piazza's If Nuns Ruled the World. These intriguing profiles of Ten Sisters on a Mission, the book's subtitle, eloquently captures the creativity, determination, faith, humor and focus in the lives of these extraordinary women.

Piazza's writing gives insight into how the sisters answered "the call" and how they live out their lives with dedication and determination. These amazing women are the good news - their agenda is improving the world - they get results.

Yes, the author wrote about The Nun on the Bus - Simone Campbell. She also introduces the reader to Sisters Nora Nash, Donna Quinn and Maureen Fiedler - people you might enjoy meeting.

Piazza's ten women stay with you. You may be awed by their lives, their approaches and results. You may ask "what more could I do?" Read this book and you may get some ideas.
