Abstract:

"The sixteenth-century convent of Our Lady of Mercy stands alone in an uninhabited part of the Spanish sierra, hidden on a hill, among dense pine forest. Its inhabitants are six women, cut off from the world they've chosen to leave behind. This all changes on the day that Mother Superior María Inés discovers a suitcase, punctured with air holes, at the entrance to the retreat. She finds the box and its contents are to have consequences beyond her imagining, and that even in her carefully protected sanctuary she is unable to keep the world, or her past, at bay."--Publisher description.
