Item description for The Angel's Promise by Frederic Lenoir...
The international bestseller and award-winning thriller that takes its reader on a richly imaginative journey to the depths of Mont-Saint-Michel.
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, Johanna, has begun to uncover and explore secrets that have long lain buried at the sacred site. In ancient ritual, in foreboding visions, in an expedition at once metaphysical and archeological, Johanna ardently researches the past only to discover that its bizarre, murderous history has begun to be repeated in the present. Reality becomes an elusive, dangerous place, and it leaves Joanna with no one she can fully trust.

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.
