There was a freedom for women and the opportunities to have careers and to travel. Opportunities not known by their mothers only a generation before.In 1963 naive, young Juliette, a newly qualified teacher, nursing her first heartbreak, travels thousands of miles across the world to a remote hill station in Southern India.

She is returning to teach French in the all-girls Catholic boarding school where she had once been a pupil. Being run by an order of teaching sisters she could not expect to find any of the free love that the sixties were becoming famous for.Juliette forms strong friendships among the staff, particularly, Alice, the young English teacher, who might prove to be her salvation when she finds herself embroiled in a scandal of huge proportions.Having settled into a normal school routine, a welcome distraction arrives in the form of five young Catholic missionary priests.

The staff know from experience that the older girls would soon imagine themselves in love with one of them. Or suddenly discover they had a desire to become a nun, which would quickly disappear as soon as the priests moved on.The young priests help in classes, take services and hold spiritual guidance sessions for the nuns, the staff and the students. Although some of the sessions may be less spiritual than others.Father Peter is a fluent French speaker and the obvious choice to help Juliette with her students. It does not occur to Juliette to question why she so looks forward to the lessons which involve Father Peter.Unbeknown to each other, both Juliette and Father Peter find themselves fighting against a growing attraction.

They are both well aware how wrong it is and know that nothing can ever come of it.Will they act upon their feelings? Can they resist them? Will they find themselves fighting the hierarchy of the Catholic Church?Juliette, having been born and brought up a Catholic knew she was committing a sin merely having these feelings, let alone acting upon them. She was also aware of the power of a priest’s vocation, of the seven years in training and the choice of a celibate life devoted to God.Share the experience of the exotic east and the love, laughter and hormones in an all-girls boarding school.

Share also the love heartache, anger and frustration that Juliette finds herself experiencing.On a personal note I, the author, was once a very happy pupil at a not dissimilar convent school in India. Although at this time I was only a teenager and this is not my story, the places and atmosphere are as real as I can remember them. Enjoy the experience of India and the twists and turns the story takes to reach its conclusion.
