Inhaltsangabe: Behind the high, closed walls of a convent in the Irish countryside, the lives of its inhabitants are gently marked by the daily rituals of spiritual life. Watching overAnna, her sensitive and poetic young charge, the Mother Superior revisits her childhood relationship with her father. As Anna develops from a six-year-old to a scholarship candidate, Helen comes to understand her own heart and makes peace with her past.
O'Brien exquisitely evokes the harem atmosphere of convent life, the beauty and the silence, the bickering and the cruelties . . . If novels can be music, this is a novel with perfect pitch ( Clare Boylan)
A wonderful book, a land to be revisited ( Irish Times)
This subtle and beautifully constructed novel deals with the conflict between human and divine love ( Sunday Times)
