Set in a convent hospital when floods isolate the building and its inhabitants taking refuge with her warders is a girl condemned to death for murder. Among the nursing sisters is Mary Bonaventure, a woman of great understanding and sympathy, who is convinced the girl is innocent, although her appeal has just been dismissed. She turns detective in her effort to establish justice, feeling that her own faith itself is bound up with the results. The author keeps inviolate the serene atmosphere of the convent, thus providing a wonderful contrast for the tormented soul of the girl who believes it is only a matter of hours before she will die.
