The Pelicans

The Pelicans

(1919)
A novel by

 
This early novel of the well known author E.M.Delafield (best known by her delightful "Provincial Lady" books, narrates the story of two young girls that after being orphaned, are taken into a convent.

Mrs.Delafield was in a convent for a year, and convents and nuns was also the subject of her following novel, which she considered her favorite: Consequences.

The author is in her element in describing the inhuman world of a convent, and the ordinary Protestant reader will be filled with amazement at the extraordinary waste of energy caused by the rule which does not allot sufficient hours of sleep to both novices and nuns. The agony which Frances Severing, the unfortunate little novice of the story, suffers from want of sleep is so graphically described that the reader will suffer with her, in this exquisite drama.
