A new priest is assigned to a parish in Saint Germain-enLaye, a city twenty kilometers west of Paris. he discovers that three men are secretly imprisoned in the Chateau Germain. He arranges to see them only to learn that one of the prisoners, Simeon Gereau, blames himself for the death of his young friend, Calista Planiere.

Calista is born in Soissons, a city on the Aisne River. World War I starts when Calista is nine. She loses both her parents and is then taken in by a benevolent older couple. She meets Captain Simeon Gereau when French forces start to mass along the river in preparation for the famous Chemin des Dames assault of April 1917, where tens of thousands of French soldiers die in just fifteen days.

Calista dies two days before the battle begins, immediately after she is Confirmed. Simon Gereau feels responsible for her death. A more detailed reading of Calista's Song will provide the answer to why Captain Gereau comes to such a conclusion. Calista Planiere affects all those she meets during the three hellish years of the Great War. Further, she lives out her life in a way that causes others to have more regard for their own.
