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, but they share a past element 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 on the agony of maternal loss and betrayal, and on love.

William Rose has had, for many years, a special interest in both the art of the Symbolism 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. William lives in London.
