Scented by chocolate and haunted by war, this compelling novel of dark miracles and angelic visitations offers up a distinctly imaginative tale.

Marie Claire is a young French Jew in a Nazi-occupied Belgian town, where she is cared for by her grandmother, who cultivates flowers. A shattering of glass, and Marie Claire’s village is in rubble. Her grandmother is dead—everyone is dead. She flees to the root cellar of the house and waits.

Eventually she is rescued by two nuns working for the Resistance, who take her to their convent near a town where small miracles and strange visions are simply a part of life.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Kelby’s slim, grim fairy tale exerts a subtle pull…appropriately resonant and troubling.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “To read Kelby’s novel is, in its own words, to ‘fall into a dream, a flying dream.’ And to paraphrase and summarize such fine-spun fiction must inevitably be as inadequate as any attempt to retell your most amazing dream the morning after.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Luscious and heartrending…overflows with miracles.”

    Atlantic Monthly

  • “An understated meditation on spirituality in the midst of war’s devastation.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “Kelby puts forth divine miracles…She has created a brave and beautiful book.”

    Baltimore Sun

  • “Kelby’s debut novel is a luminous, harrowing tale of wartime horrors and miracles…Striking, clear images give the novel a surreal cast…Such flashes of sensual detail are made even more poignant when contrasted with the atrocities of the war, and Kelby’s spare, elliptical prose effectively brings these moments to light, infusing the emotionally and spiritually loaded subject matter with an uncommon intimacy. Saints and Nazis may make strange bedfellows, but Kelby rises to the challenge with considerable command in a haunting debut that erodes the distinctions between waking and dreaming, faith and reason, life and death.”
