Five for Sorrow Ten for Joy : A Virago Modern Classic, Paperback Book

Five for Sorrow Ten for Joy : A Virago Modern Classic Paperback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Description

The Sisters of Bethanie, a French order of Dominican nuns, dedicate themselves to caring for the outcasts of society - criminals, prostitutes and drug addicts.

Lise, an English girl who after the liberation of Paris was employed in one of the city's smartest brothels and rose to become a successful madame, finds herself joining the Sisters.

Master storyteller Rumer Godden weaves a deeply moving tale of Lise's prison sentence, her conversion and the agonising work among women whose traumatic experiences often outstrip even her own.
