Valerie Bertinelli shows us the life of Sister Mary.
Valerie Bertinelli once again.Gives us her best in this tv movie drama.Which is based on the story of former nun:Sister Mary Gilligan.Mary Gilligan(Bertinelli)completes high school and believes that she has received the call to serve God.She enters an abbey.Where her aunt is one of the sisters.She trains for the noviciate.But she has trouble adapting to the ridgid lifestyles of the church.Eventually she becomes aware of the second vatican and she tries to fall in love with a young priest.She also trains to become an psychologist.But her love for "Father Tim"is rejected.Due to the fact that the father is not willing to jeopardizes his career in the church and he is forced to leave her.She does become a successful dr.of psychology and she leaves NYC for Southern Ca.Where she creates a successful medical practice and she meets her future husband.The story is interesting and the performances from most of the cast is good.The only damper is the love story between Ms.Bertinelli and the young actor playing the priest.Their romance is unconvincing and after a while becomes a bore.Despite this flaw."Shattered Vows"is a wonderful dramatic tale.
