 General Description:

Diane Ahern
Illustrated by Katherine Larson

Riley and Delaney are supposed to stay with their aunt, Sister Philomena, in her convent near Rome for the summer.  Riley expects this to be a horrible summer living with a bunch of nuns with nothing to do but pray and go to church.  That attitude starts to change when the secret nature of their aunt's work begins to unfold.

On their first morning in Italy, Sister Philomena rushes Riley and Delaney to the Vatican to help the Pope with an intruder in the Apostolic Palace.

"The real Pope?  How can his aunt know the real Pope?  She must be nuts.," thinks Riley.  As it turns out, not only does she know the Pope, but Sister Philomena is the Pope's special agent and private investigator.

In Book One of Adventures With Sister Philomena the children learn about St. Peter, explore the Vatican Gardens, follow a mischievous white cat, make friends with a Swiss Guard, discover the grandeur of St. Peter's Basilica, and fall upon the mystery of Peter's tomb and relics.  Unexpectedly they help the Poope and their aunt solve the mystery of the intruder and the theft of St. Peter's bones!
