Summary

Summary

Rumer Godden, author of The Battle of Villa Fiorita and Kingfishers Catch Fire, has chosen his favorite locale-the high places of the Indian sub-continent-for this superb story of a group of nuns seeking a spiritual haven. When the Sisters ride their small ponies into the remote village where they are to start a school, they are greeted with a general feeling of suspicion and annoyance. The residents hope that the Sisters will be only a minor inconvenience and try to teach only the ladies. But the shabby, gentle Mr. Dean and the polished young Indian general are only part of a cast of unique people in this rough, high land of snowfalls, songs, and fluttering robes. Each will eventually reach out to the Sisters and teach them much about faith, hope, and the human heart. Over the Sisters' school and the village, the craggy peaks of the Himalayas cast both dark and foreboding shadows and flashes of brilliant sunlight. Godden deftly employs the clash of local culture with Western civilization to transform a romantic suspense story into a riveting drama.
