Episode Summary

EDIT
Frances
AIRED:
Frances Heffernon is a child of divorced parents who misses her father terribly and struggles at times in her relationship with her mother. When Frances's mother, a Catholic, announces that she is to remarry, Frances is not only torn between her pain because there is no hope of her parents getting back together, but she must also contend with taunts and jibes from several other girls at the convent of Santo Spirito, where she is a boarder.

Frances gives her mother full backing when she attempts to get her marriage annulled, and is bitter and hurt when the Bishop refuses consent based on Church law. In spite of this, Elizabeth Heffernon and Roger Conlan decide to get married in a civil ceremony. Mother Ambrose gives Frances permission to attend the ceremony and Frances is delighted when Sister Paul and Sister Catherine, who has recently returned to the convent after her period in exile, attend the ceremony with her, but Sister Agnes and the ultra-conservative parents of the others girls openly snub Frances's mother when she arrives to assist with the school play after her marriage.

Whilst Frances is very hurt, she is openly supported by the school rebel, Rosemary Fitzgerald, and by Brigid Maloney, the 'brains' of the school. Her mother tells her not to be concerned by what others think and say and Frances wins a victory when she does a terrific job of the lead in the school play and her dad, new stepfather and proud mother arrive to see her confirmed into the faith.
