This novel is set in the 17th century in a remote abbey on the seashore of Brittany France. In the story, a young gypsy woman, along with her daughter, take refuge in the abbey. The gypsy woman, Juliette recounts her previous years as a traveling street performer and is haunted by memories of betrayal by her lover LeMerle. The story picks up when LeMerle shows up at the abbey as the new "priest."
Full of intrigue and unexpected plot twists, this wonderful tale includes stories of love, loss and forgiveness. If you love historical novels with strong and passionate characters, you will love this book! But, if history isn't your "thing," you may find it a bit boring.
