It is also a story about relationships and friendships and we see how, over the years at the school, friendships and alliances between the girls, teachers and nuns are made, strengthened, broken and realigned.
Whilst the story itself is set in WWII the war itself is very much in the background and hardly ever referred to for the most part, even during prayer sessions - until the latter part of the book nobody seems to be affected by it at all. It is almost as if that is a deliberate move, to reinforce the fact that the school and the church in particular are separate from world events and will carry on whatever is going on in the outside world.
Whilst it is an enjoyable read, it is rather monotonous - the book just follows term on term year after year with only events like the school play or feast days breaking the normal routine and there just aren't enough external events portrayed to break it up. The end result is really just a pleasant read, if rather boring. A shame really, because I have enjoyed other books by the author.
