In the year 1605, a young, pregnant widow seeks sanctuary at the Abbey of Sainte Marie-de-la-mer. After the birth of her daughter, she takes up the veil, and a new name, Soeur Auguste. But the peace she has found is shattered five years later by the events that follow the death of her kind benefactress, the Reverend Mother.

When a new abbess arrives at Sainte Marie-de-la-mer, she does not arrive alone. With her is her personal confessor and spiritual guide, Pere Colombin, a man Soeur Auguste knows all too well. The newcomer is Guy LeMerle, now masquerading as a priest, and the one man she fears more than any other.

Soeur Auguste has a secret. Once she was l'Ailee, star performer of a troupe led by LeMerle, before betrayal forced her to change her identity.

But now the past has found her. To protect herself and her beloved child, l'Ailee will have to perform one last act of dazzling daring more audacious than any she has previously attempted. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " A little too flowery in terms of the language, but an interesting story and I did like the shifting perspective. "

    " An excellent example of Catholic ridiculousness and hypocrisy (which given Chocolat, seems to be one of her favorite themes). A 12 year old is put into a position of power over many nuns much older then her. Many of the nuns had had children and husbands at one time or another and yet they are referred to as virgin brides of Christ. Two of the nuns are lovers and the Arch Bishop has a son (Guy LeMerle) who disguises himself as a confessor to gain revenge against his father and is willing to allow his twelve year old cousin to burn herself alive in order to do it. "

    " I loved the tone and the tempo of the story and although the ending was not what I wanted while I was reading, by the time I got to the end of the book, it was, if that makes any sense. Good versus Evil but in the end we are all human after all. "

    " A good enough read, although not her best work to date. The ending was a little flat. Beautifully written however. "
