Irene, in acquiring language, also acquires her view of the strange circumstances around her: air-raid shelter, front, concentration camp.

As her language grows up, so do her insights: the end of the war, the arrival of the American soldiers, her mothers daily struggle for survival, the meanness of most villagers toward her mother, a born German in reborn Austria and a Protestant exposed to the bigotry of Roman Catholic institutions.

A keen observer and an avid reader, Irene at age ten receives a scholarship to an exclusive boarding school. Separated from her beloved mother, hounded by never-ending rules and orders, pressured by her own desire to achieve, Irene, still a child, still wanting to understand, is slowly destroyed.
