Sister M. Wilberta, O.P., was the co-protagonist in Chapter One of THE GODMOTHER. On the very day of the book’s release the author set out to find that extraordinary young woman who had made such a profound and lasting impression on him as a first and second grader [1957-1959] at Saint Augustine Grammar School. Teacher and pupil had not seen or heard from each other in almost 60 years.(Above) Sister Mary Ann Hyde, O.P. (FKA, Sister M. Wilberta, O.P.) displays her copy of THE GODMOTHER, a story especially dedicated to her.
