Joanne Harris ↠ 8 SUMMARY

D the one man she fears than any otherSoeur Auguste has a secret Once she was l'Ailée The Winged One star performer of a troupe led by LeMerle before betrayal forced her to change her identity But now the past has found her Before long thanks to LeMerle suspicion and debauchery are breeding like a plague within the convent's walls fueled by dark rumors of witchcraft part of the false priest's brilliantly orchestrated scheme of revenge To protect herself and her beloved child l'Ailée will have to perform one last act of dazzling daring audacious than any she has previously attempted. The plot of this novel is fairly original and the beginning seemed promising Where it failed was on the actual execution of the plot and motivation of characters The whole plot just seems unlikely Things happen without explanation and it is hard to believe how these people got from what they used to be to what they are Another problem is that this book did not give me the feel of the time period

    I have mixed feelings about this book It was a nice contrast and complement after The Pillars of the Earth as that book was set in a monastery in England and this one in a convent in France though 500 years later I have not read Chocolat by Harris but of course I have seen the movie and thoroughly enjoyed itThis book is uite different—much darker and without a satisfactory ending in my opinion I liked the character

    One of the reasons I like to read historical fiction set in far away places is I learn about history and far away places This book doesn't give that satisfaction because instead of doing historical and locational research the author made stuff up She sets much of the action in a nunnery on an island near the southern town Saintes Maries de la Mer I've actually been to this town and there's no island and no nunnery there I think sh
