Betty Trask Award Best First Novel (nominee)
Set during the 1970s in an Irish convent, this is the story of Grace, who, in her final year, finds herself taken up jointly by sensible Trish and rebellious Colette. Colette is beautiful, capricious and very, very thin; her brother Johnny haunts the girls' conversations and Grace's dreams.
