The narrative unfolds in a dreamy, hypnotic mood that captures well the timeless quality of the nuns' existence until the arrival of a priest who threatens to bring an end to the life of their community. Creates a highly vivid contrast between the sleepy peace of their agrarian existence versus the purposefulness and often harsh swiftness of modern society. Poses interesting questions about the divergent ways spirituality develops under such different conditions.
