As Cathleen undergoes the hardships of her novitiate year — periods of enforced silence and public confession of faults in front of her peers — we are shown a young woman who, from an early age, was rock-certain about her devotion to God. But when Cathleen meets, and falls for, a novice Rebecca Dayan who has transferred from another convent, our heroine — who has never even kissed before — begins to question not just her religious convictions but also her sense of self.
Cathleen partakes of this lash, willingly, after waking one night in the throes of what appear to be sexual fantasies. Betts has put together a talented acting ensemble, and the performances are, for the most part, uniformly good and subtle, particularly among the actresses who play the young novices.

Modern Text. A povre widwe, somdel stope in age, Was whylom dwelling in a narwe cotage, Bisyde a grove, stonding in a dale.
This widwe, of which I telle yow my tale, Sin thilke day that she was last a wyf, In pacience ladde a ful simple lyf, For litel was hir catel and hir rente; By housbondrye, of such as God hir sente, She fond hir-self, and eek hir doghtren two. Ful sooty was hir bour, and eek hir halle, In which she eet ful many a sclendre meel. Of poynaunt sauce hir neded never a deel.
