The White Sister

by F. Marion Crawford

A Roman setting lends appropriate coloring to this story of convent life. A prince, an adherent of the clerical party, is killed in a motor car accident and because of his refusal to have his marriage legally ratified, combined with the fact that no will comes to light, his daughter is turned out into the streets by the jealous inheritor of the title and wealth. The tale deals with her renunciation of her love for an artillery officer, her life as the "white sister" in a convent, her discovery of her aunt's theft of the will, the return of her love and the struggle between her obligation to the man and her allegiance to the church, and her final release from the convent.
