It was the dream of Molly’s dying mother that she would become a nun. It isn’t, however, the dream of her Methodist father, who wants her to marry.
But what is her true calling and how can she follow it?
As the 19th century draws to an end, Molly searches out the extraordinary nun Mother Mary Joseph Aubert to find out.
