Spain, 1920s. The lives of three Carmelite nuns intersect and develop through a period of intense experience. In their personal histories there is great contrast, from the artistic exuberance of Paris in ‘La Belle Époque’ to slavery in Africa, but a past element is shared that has deeply affected each one.

William Rose adeptly guides the narrative through Africa, Spain and France in the early decades of the 20th century, as the characters reveal their histories and discover the destinies that await them.

This novel is a striking exploration of personal history aided by the spirited observations of an eccentric French psychoanalyst. It is also an emotive reflection upon the agony of maternal loss and betrayal, and upon love.

About the Author(s)

William Rose was born and continues to live in London. He has had, for many years, a special interest in both the art of the Symbolist movement and the early development of psychoanalysis, two areas of cultural purpose that in their own very different ways, aimed to free the human psyche from the limitations of repression.

Great follow-up to Strange Case of Madeleine Seguin, mystery, suspense, history, magic...
Read this delicious new book over three days in the sun, unable to put it down except for meals, outings and swimming. Stunned. Seems so personal! (Gave me ideas about my meta-mythological pictures (pretentious? Moi?) in a way I haven’t thought about before.) I feel it’s done something to me, something significant, rare in any book. Reading the psychoanalysts when I was 17 was an utterly shallow skimming I now realise and 70 years later I’m rereading whatever I can get my hands on. Mr Rose’s ability to relate art, religion and psychoanalysis in a suspense-filled novel I find irresistibly exciting, bless him. His writing is unfashionably pure, so leisurely, so comprehensive, with few metaphors or similes yet so visual, never an important clue to his intent is missing. And his use of mythology is thrilling. I can’t wait for vol 3. I’m already mentally casting J in the movie. Meryl for Genevieve? Who’s Morel though? I suppose Cumberbatch?... no too predictable for Mr Rose. As for Camille, well, over to you, gentle reader!
