In pre-war South Africa, Sarah Balfour, a nursing Sister, administered to young women and girls awaiting punishment in the court system. This provocative memoir tells in great detail of Sister Sarah's job and "good fortune" of examining girls prior to their punishments-- often canings and strappings while tied naked to the whipping bench.
