Frost In May, Paperback Book

Description

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 accepts this closed world where, with all the enthusiasm of the outsider, her desires and passions become only those the school permits.

Her only deviation from total obedience is the passionate friendships she makes.Convent life is perfectly captured - the smell of beeswax and incense; the petty cruelties of the nuns; the eccentricities of Nanda's school friends.
