The story is not of this Earth, but set in a Victorian era, somewhat steam punk world of magic and intrigue.
As we meet our heroines, they are trouble-shooters or warriors protecting the normal populace from supernatural harm; their being lovers are hampered by the fact that Imogen is quite dead and extant in spirit form. Portia is dispatched to the titular convent to investigate a plea for help; Imogen reluctantly attends to her.

Imogen was a resident here and recognizes many of the children in stasis — her kind age much more slowly than Homo sapiens.
