Description du produit
Revue de presse
Beautiful and haunting, this is a great story of love, loss and courage. (WOMAN)
an absorbing tale of loss and remembrance in the aftermath of the First World War ... Mosse excels at transporting her readers into another time and another world ... Mosse's depiction of life in Southern France between the wars is utterly convincing. Not only that, the book itself is a work of art - with stunning illustrations by artist Brian Gallagher and copies of vintage maps as endpapers. (EXPRESS)
A poignant, spooky study of mourning and redemption (MARIE CLAIRE)
The themes of love, loss and remembrance are explored to create a wonderfully haunting winter's tale. Stop the clock and read it in one sitting. (SHE)
An enchanting novella ... Mosse proves that she can weave a web of poignant and thrilling strands that will ensnare any reader. (THE LADY)
This is a great read ... Mosse writes movingly about loss and atmospherically about France (Wendy Holden DAILY MAIL)
It takes much of what appeals about her bestselling novels - and adds a heartbreaking story - what is really haunting about Mosse's tale is the rawness of Freddie's grief (THE TIMES) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché.
Présentation de l'éditeur
A haunting ghost story from the French mountains.
The Great War took much more than lives. It robbed a generation of friends, lovers and futures. In Freddie Watson's case, it took his beloved brother and, at times, his peace of mind. Unable to cope with his grief, Freddie has spent much of the time since in a sanatorium.
In the winter of 1928, still seeking resolution, Freddie is travelling through the French Pyrenees - another region that has seen too much bloodshed over the years. During a snowstorm, his car spins off the mountain road. Shaken, he stumbles into the woods, emerging by a tiny village. There he meets Fabrissa, a beautiful local woman, also mourning a lost generation. Over the course of one night, Fabrissa and Freddie share their stories of remembrance and loss. By the time dawn breaks, he will have stumbled across a tragic mystery that goes back through the centuries.
By turns thrilling, poignant and haunting, this is a story of two lives touched by war and transformed by courage.--Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché.

One cannot go wrong, reading anything by Kate Mosse.
As soon as we reach the fete at the Ostal we meet a group of characters whose names come straight out of Ladurie's Montaillou and a reader who is up on medieval heretics knows exactly who our ghosts are going to turn out to have been. That knowledge did not affect my enjoyment, especially as Catharism fascinates me.
To summarize, this is a good ghost story but not a great ghost story.
Thank you Kate!!!
