British actress Phyllida Nash, who has appeared in over fifty BBC radio plays, reads Alison Joseph's fourth novel, featuring the rebellious nun-sleuth Agnes Bourdillon. In this novel, Sister Agnes has been sent by her order to a convent school in Yorkshire, where she counsels her students for everything from anorexia to running away to dead boyfriends. Matters get messy when she becomes ensconced in the dark secrets of a local textile mill. Nash's reading expresses every possible accent and human emotion in this touching portrayal of people, their relationships, and their inner struggles. S.E.S.
