Summary
Kurt Stocker's Swiss childhood is dominated by strict and godfearing parents. He enters a seminary with the intent of becoming a priest and making his parents proud of him but struggles to adapt. Leaving this vocation behind, he marries Liesl and they eventually emigrate to Australia. Decades later in small town Australia, Terry Riley feels drawn to convent life, despite her family's objections. At the convent, she is haunted by a strange sickness and knows in time that she must return to a more conventional life. It is then she begins a relationship with the now divorced Kurt, who was once her high school teacher. This is the story of an odd couple, of an older man and a younger woman in love with one another, but so damaged by their past lives that even a regular sexual relationship seems impossible
