Item description for The Angel's Promise by Frdric Lenoir...

"A madly imaginative . . . breathtaking theological thriller."-Elle (France)

Rising out of the sea on a rocky isle off the coast of France, the church and abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel have withstood the harsh northern weather-and withheld its darkest medieval mysteries-for one thousand years. Until now.

Now a young, brilliant archeologist, Joanna, has begun to uncover and explore secrets that have long lain buried at the sacred site. For not even ten centuries have been able to obliterate completely the brutal treachery of the Benedictine monk Brother Almodius or the misfortunes of the tender-hearted Brother Roman in his forbidden love for a Celtic girl who survived ritualistic torture by the elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

In an expedition at once metaphysical and archeological, reality becomes an elusive, dangerous place, and it leaves Joanna with no one she can fully trust: from her married lover, Franois, to Simon, the cosmopolitan antique dealer strangely connected to the abbey; to Guillaume, whose passion for Joanna's work comes not unalloyed; to the jealous archeologist-and devious saboteur-Patrick Fenoy.

Her science increasingly challenged by inexplicable mysteries, in the embrace of peril Joanna treads the ancient stones and arcana in the depths of the Romanesque abbey at Mont-Saint-Michel as this prize-winning and artfully-crafted thriller unfolds.

Frdric Lenoir is a philosopher specializing in the study of religions. He has published over 20 books and been translated in over a dozen languages.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Angel's Promise?

excellent  Feb 9, 2008
two lives, centuries apart, become intertwined in the present. riveting twist and turns as the story travels from the past to the present and back again. for anyone having traveled to Mont St. Michel and interested in it's history, this is truly a great read.
Worth The Effort  Dec 14, 2007
This is a hard read. I finally went to a web-site and copied a glossary of Cathedral terminology. The book moves between an 11th Century monastery which is the scene for love,torture,murder; and a modern day archeologist who is on a quest to discover what happened. There is a love story, intrigue,ghosts,keepers of secrets... what more could you want! A very tough read, but worth the effort.
