Description
The setting of this novel is Nicaragua in the 1970's, a Central American country impoverished by a cruel dictatorship and a devastating earthquake that destroyed Managua, the capital city. A young teenager, whose parents perished during the earthquake, moves to a rural community to rebuild her life, helping a Christian peasant community.

Summary
An aristocratic Knight of Malta undertakes to construct and operate a Campesino Training School in a joint venture with a Dutch missionary priest in a rural area of Nicaragua in 1974. The Knight is a contemplative and a mystic but the priest is always so busy with his numerous charitable projects that he scarcely has time for prayer. A young Nicaraguan girl, who lost all her family in the earthquake of 1972, and for whom the priest has appointed himself an unofficial guardian, helps them in their endeavors. The girl, who came from a prominent family, is volatile and unstable, the Knight proud and quick-tempered, and the priest earthly and devious. Their often humorous struggles to reach their goal, despite their faults and differences form the background of this novel. But fundamentally this is a love story: the varying relations each of these persons has with God, and the one forbidden love that almost tore them apart.
