A New York Times Bestseller

The Gargoyle: the mesmerizing story of one man's descent into personal hell and his quest for salvation.

On a dark road in the middle of the night, a car plunges into a ravine. The driver survives the crash, but his injuriesconfine him to a hospital burn unit. There the mysterious Marianne Engel, a sculptress of grotesques, enters his life. She insists they were lovers in medieval Germany, when he was a mercenary and she was a scribe in the monastery of Engelthal. As she spins the story of their past lives together, the man's disbelief falters; soon, even the impossible can no longer be dismissed.

I loved this novel. The story was so engrossing, weaving back and forth between the Middle Ages and the present day. Narrated by a horribly scarred burn victim who is visited by a strange woman one day in his hospital room, the story grows ever more intriguing as the reader must decipher whether what this woman reveals to our narrator is real or imagined.

A beautifully-spun story that evolves into an extraordinary tale of love.
