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 Saint 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. Joanne Harris is the author of the international bestsellers CHOCOLAT, BLACKBERRY WINE, FIVE QUARTERS OF THE ORANGE and COASTLINERS, the number one bestseller HOLY FOOLS, a collection of short stories JIGS & REELS and with Fran Warde, THE FRENCH KITCHEN: A COOKBOOK.
