A novel about the nuns of the Benedictine Convent of Oby in the 14th century

Summary
To become a nun in the fourteenth century was often a business transaction rather than a spiritual calling; it is small wonder then, that the inhabitants of the Benedictine convent of Oby are prey to worldly ambitions, frustrations, pleasures and jealousies. An outbreak of the Black Death, the collapse of the convent spire and a disappearance are the dramas that strike this cloistered community.
