Spain, 1920s. The lives of three Carmelite nuns intersect and develop through a period of intense experience. In their personal histories there is great contrast, from the artistic exuberance of Paris in 'La Belle Epoque' to slavery in Africa, but a past element is shared that has deeply affected each one. This novel is a striking exploration of personal history and what lies beneath the surface of polite society. It is also an emotive reflection upon the agony of maternal loss and betrayal, and upon love.

As in his previous novel, The Strange Case of Madeleine Seguin, William Rose adeptly portrays a time and place of great change and intrigue, as the story journeys through Africa, Spain and France in the early decades of the 20th century, and the characters reveal their histories and discover the destinies that await them.

About the Author(s)

William Rose was born and continues to live in London. He has had, for many years, a special interest in both the art of the Symbolist movement and the early development of psychoanalysis, two areas of cultural purpose that in their own very different ways, aimed to free the human psyche from the limitations of repression.
