Sinopsis:

Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw, now mylar-sleeved. Not price-clipped. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered.; 429 pages; Physical description: 429 p. ; 19 cm. Summary: Set in seventeenth-century France against a backdrop of witch trials, regicide and religious frenzy, this is the story of Juliette, one-time actress and rope-dancer. Forced by circumstance to seek refuge with Fleur, her young daughter, in the remote abbey of Sainte Marie-de-la-Mer, Juliette reinvents herself as Soeur Auguste under the tutelage of the kindly Abbess. But times are changing: the murder of Henri IV becomes the catalyst for massive upheaval in France. A new appointment is made, and Juliette's new life begins to unravel. For the new Abbess is Isabelle, the eleven-year-old child of a corrupt, noble family. Worse, Isabelle has brought with her a ghost from Juliette's past, masquerading as a cleric, a man she has every reason to fear... Subjects: France - History - 17th century - Fiction.

Críticas:

The author of the best-selling Chocolat has produced a moving story set in 17th century France. Juliette, a former actress and rope dancer, has abandoned her travelling life and, with her young daughter, becomes a teaching nun in a remote abbey under the care of the wise abbess. We look back at Juliette's life and her link with the sinister Blackbird named Le Merle, while the abbess dies and in her place is appointed an 11-year-old girl full of the zeal of reform. Everything begins to go wrong in Juliette's tranquil life. A gripping story from start to finish.
