The book is set in Spain and centres around four nuns and their unwitting involvement with outlawed Basque nationalists and the Spanish Army.The fact I read this very early in the morning as I was unable to sleep may have something to do with this review, but I found this book very lightweight in characterisation (it's not my first Sheldon book and I know he does it elsewhere too). There are 4 nuns who get split up after their convent is raided by the Spanish Army looking for some Eta terrorists. They go on the run with the ETA bods, and all but one of the women fall in love with the man that they are with and each have to make a decision. However, there is little to differentiate one nun from the other, so it was difficult to keep track of who was doing what and what their motivation was.read more

This is set in the Basque rebellion in Spain. Four nuns are forced to flee their convent, each has interesting early lives and this escape changes the future lives of all of them as they go on the run with the charismatic Miro and his group of Basque nationalists - not knowing who to trust. I really enjoyed this bookread more

Very entertainig and made me travel to Spain and the Vasque country in a very chaotic time. Also, I myself find spiritual relief in religion so I understand how these troubled women give up this world and go to the convent, then when faced with the world again but with other people and situations they decide to leave the convent and live in this world and love. Pasionate, spiritual, raw.read more

I enjoyed this, despite the ease with which a few of the nuns gave up their cause for more earthly desires. You get a little taste of the Basque guerilla movement, a little taste of romance, and a big taste of adventure. A fun read.read more
