Glenmont, NY – The Rev. Susan B. Bowman, retired Episcopal priest and published author today announced the re-release of her memoir, “Lady Father.” It is a compelling story of her journey that carried her, as an ordained priest, into the traditionally all-male priesthood. Its honest portrayal of workplace discrimination will provide an inside look at the history of the ordination of women in the Episcopal Church of the 1980’s and 1990’s as well as the perseverance and courage it took to find peace and joy in a vocation once reserved for males.
“’Susan, I may not be able to ordain you, but I will not stand in your way,” said the Rt. Rev. C. Charles Vache,’ 7th Bishop of the Diocese of Southern Virginia when Susan presented herself for admission into the ordination process.
“Susan’s voice is authentic and has the Southern charm of tea on the porch in the evening. Her story is poignant and a true testimony to life’s great design,” said one reader in a book review.
For readers who enjoy a great read, “Lady Father” is:
- A compelling story of what it means to follow a call and cause
- A narrative that is filled with real life, its angst and its humor
- A good read for anyone who enjoys walking the author’s journey
“Lady Father” will be available starting September 20, on Amazon and other booksellers. For more information on “Lady Father,” visit her Author Page at https://www.amazon.com/Susan-Bowman/e/B0054T8UFO/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_0.
