I want to write a cohesive story that is not just about ‘what did your children say?’ or how it was possible to tell the truth at work. It
will of course be an autobiography, but I want to highlight other perspectives and broaden the content. How is it possible to,  after a life of over 50 years, start living as a woman without being questioned or even what this mean in a priestly, ecclesiastical context where such people were not even present in the imaginary world also has its place in the story.
