I read this book in the 1950's when I was a kid. I am amazed how it stayed with me and how, when I read it now, there were passages --- really remarks or descriptions --- that I remembered. I looked up the author on the web and learned, much to my surprise, that she had been head of the creative writing department at Carnegie Mellon University.

The overarching theme is the fate of individuals and institutions perceived as oppositional (the Church here) in the face of totalitarianism. My knowledge
