Flirting With Monasticism, by Karen E. Sloan. It is just your typical "Girl meets boy. Boy joins monastic order" story -- Sloan recounts her friendship (stronger feelings on her part) with a man taking orders as a Dominican friar. A protestant, she recounts her introduction to the order, to monks, to Catholocism, etc ... very interesting read. I learned a ton.
