About the book:

Nanda Gray, the daughter of a Catholic convert, is nine when she is sent to the Convent of Five Wounds. Quick-witted, resilient, and eager to please, she adapts to this cloistered world, learning rigid conformity and subjection to authority. Passionate friendships are the only deviation from her total obedience. Convent lifethe smell of beeswax and incense, the petty cruelty of the nuns, the glamour and eccentricity of Nanda's friendsis perfectly captured by Antonia White.
