"She would stop at nothing to protect the women under her care.  Inside a century-old row house in Brooklyn, renegade Sister Evelyn and her fellow nuns preside over a safe haven for the abused and abandoned. Gruff and indomitable on the surface, warm and wry underneath, little daunts Evelyn, until she receives word that Mercy House will be investigated by Bishop Hawkins, a man with whom she shares a dark history. In order to protect everything they’ve built, the nuns must conceal many of their methods, which are forbidden by the Catholic Church."

Alena is also the author of the humorous book We Agreed to Pee in the Ocean. Her works have appeared in several publications: LitHub, The Rumpus, Slice Magazine, Scary Mommy, River Teeth, The Doctor TJ Eckleburg Review, and The Smart Set. Alena teaches creative writing at Endicott College and St. Joseph's College. She lives in Boston with her husband, newborn son and little black pup named Penny.
