The return of the nun

Jacaranda: A Novella of the Clockwork Century - Cherie Priest

One of my favorite literary nuns is in this book.  

 

Priest's novella is set in the Clockwork Century world and deals with the historic Galveston Hurricane.  It also concerns a haunted hotel.

 

This isn't going to be to everyone's taste, most of the all the ending isn't - though I enjoyed it.
