In 1891, young Léonie Vernier and her brother arrive at the home of their widowed aunt in Rennes-le-Bains, southwestern France. But nothing is as Léonie had imagined. Their aunt is young, willowy, and beautiful, and the estate is a subject of local superstition. Villagers claim that Léonie's late uncle died after summoning a demon from the old Visigoth sepulchre on its grounds …

More than a century later, Meredith Martin, an American graduate student, arrives in Rennes-le-Bains while researching the life of Claude Debussy. Haunted by a Tarot reading she had in Paris—and possessing the mysterious deck of cards—she checks into a grand old hotel built on the site of a famous mountain estate destroyed by fire in 1896. There, the pack of Tarot cards and a piece of nineteenth-century music known as Sepulchre 1891 hold the key to her fate—just as they did to the fate of Léonie Vernier.

    " Really good book, but detail almost to a fault, lots of reading for the story to get going "

    " I liked it. I like books inter wind past and present stories. And this one had magic and mystery enough. A bonus! "

    " I picked this up as a Bargain Book. I've always been fascinated by otherworldly themes in novels, but this one was a little dark for me. I can handle darkness in books if it somehow reflects on the human condition, or has something to contribute to our understanding of history, but this was just sort of dark for the sake of being unnerving. I read it anyway, because I found the characters kind of interesting. Actually, there were times I couldn't put it down - but I'm not going to re-read this ever. "

    " If you liked Labryinth, this one is better!!! "
