Summary Note "Set in London and in the south of France, Nuns and Soldiers is the story of two women: Gertrude Openshaw, bereft from the recent death of her husband, yet awakening to passion; and Anne Cavidge, who has returned in doubt from many years in a nunnery, only to encounter her personal Christ. An array of men and women hover in urgent orbit around the two women: the "Count," a lonely Pole obsessively reliving his emigre father's patriotic anguish; Tim Reede, a seedy yet appealing artist; Daisy, his mistress; the manipulative Mrs. Mount; and many other magically drawn characters."--BOOK JACKET.
