In Dorchester, Massachusetts, the nuns at the Convent of Our Lady of Good Counsel offer sanctuary to the terrified pregnant daughter of a Boston politician. In Cambridge, a small-time crook is murdered.

She heads a east that includes lawyer Paul Dorys, who loves her; Martin Moon, a blueblood who loves nobody; Sister Raphael, who loves everybody; and Lyuba McVey; whose heart belongs equally to booze and her murdered son.
