Die berühmte Novelle von 1931 spielt in der Zeit der Französischen Revolution. Geschildert werden das Schicksal der Karmeliterinnen Blanche de La Force und Marie de L'Incarnation sowie die Hinrichtung von 16 Glaubensschwestern im Juli 1794. Die 1926 zum katholischen Glauben konvertierte Le Fort schildert reale Zeitgeschichte als Heilsgeschichte und rückt ihre Novelle damit in die Nähe zur Heiligenlegende.
