Publisher Comments:

Joanne Harris, bestselling author of Chocolat, presents her most accomplished novel yet — an intoxicating concoction that blends theology and reason, deception and masquerade, with a dash of whimsical humor and a soupçon of sensuality.

Britanny, 1610. Juliette, a one-time actress and rope dancer, is forced to seek refuge among the sisters of the abbey of Sainte Marie-de-la-mer. Reinventing herself as Soeur Auguste, Juliette makes a new life for herself and her young daughter, Fleur.

But when the kindly abbess dies, Juliette's comfortable existence begins to unravel. The abbey's new leader is the daughter of a corrupt noble family, and she arrives with a ghost from Juliette's past — Guy LeMerle, a man she has every reason to fear and hate.This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

Talk about a thriller! This author brings to life the complicated, intertwining experiences of equally complicated personalities in a story through which the reader not only gets caught up in their lives, but also learns all kinds of interesting things about life in this time and place. Truly an emotional ride, full of adventure.
