Riassunto: At the age of nine a girl enters a convent boarding school, dedicated to the "creation of soldiers of Christ, accustomed to hardship and ridicule". In this enclosed world, forbidden but passionate friendships provide the only deviation from a regime that almost stifles her young soul.
Dall'editore: Nanda Gray, daughter of a Catholic convert, is nine when in 1908 she goes to the Convent of the Five Wounds. Quick?witted, resilient, and enthusiastic, she eagerly adapts to this cloistered world, learning rigid conformity and subjection to authority. Passionate friendships are the only deviation from her total obedience. Convent life ? the smell of beeswax and incense, the petty cruelty of the nuns, the glamour and eccentricity of Nanda's friends ? is perfectly captured by Antonia White.
