A heavy story about a nun who is caught in the turbulent Congo after it becomes an independent nation. It is a story of great soul-searching. Belgian nuns have a convent in the Congo, but a leader of nationalist rebels, Elie, tells them to leave. He says all whites and colonists will

probably be killed, but the nuns cannot leave without their bishop's permission. Schiaffino helps a woman and is raped by a group of marauders. The attackers arrive at the convent and ruthlessly kill the mother superior, de Guevara, and Elie. White mercenaries come to the rescue and all return to

Brussels. There, Schiaffino discovers she is pregnant and is scorned by her family. To add to her misery, the Vatican issues an ultimatum: renounce her vows or give up the child. Richardson, who has always loved her, offers to marry her and accept the child, but Schiaffino turns him away because

she already is married to Christ.
