Between human love and love of God, which will win out?
In 1959 in Sister Cécile’s class, 12-year-old Léonie meets Father Malachy, a recently ordained priest visiting her school. It’s love at first sight for the dreamy and solitary child who retreats into religious piety to escape her oppressive home life. But there’s also a spark between Sister Cécile and Father Malachy who are forced to hide their strong attraction for one another, an attraction forbidden by their vows. Both are young and passionate, making it difficult to hide their emotions...
Fifty years later, Léonie must come to terms with her betrayal so many years before...
