Product Description

Nostradamus, the world-famous prophet and seer, tells the compelling story of his life - a magical web of horoscopes, dreams, omens and prophecies set against the deadly political intrigue of the glittering French court of the sixteenth century...
Nostradamus is the Dreamer. The Vine is the twisting family tree of the kings whose roots reach back into ancient times long before Christ, revealing the mysterious powers of the engimatic goddess, Notre Dame... and a fearsome, unforgettable secret...
'Compelling... full of rich imagery... succeeds in conveying a powerful, dreamlike impression of that splendid yet terrible period with its strange blend of mysticism and political expediency.'
SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
'intriguing'

5.0 out of 5 stars This is my favourite book ever! 14 May 2004
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book half heartedly in a jumble sale as a teenager as I was interested in Nostradamus at the time- it probably sat in my library for about 5 years before I finally got round to reading it.
On the surface it is a story about the life and times of Nostrodamus and very richly evokes the medieval french setting being densely packed with historic references, symbolism and detail. The character of Nostrodamus -the wandering jew- is wonderfully human and convincingly drawn- as are the curious historic characters of the heroic Duc de Guise and the enigmatic Cardinal Lorraine. The setting makes reference to many current trends in the theory of the development of the French court and its relation to a 'secret' underlying the foundation of western society. It is never direct in this as, for example, Dan Browns The Da Vinci Code which clobbers you over the head - it gently nudges you and teases you until the end when it calmly and subtley hints at a bigger and integrated picture, leaving you spellbound and dazed long after putting it down.
I once loaned this book to an (ex) friend who never returned it and I swore I would never be without again. I now own about 5 copies and regularly dip in and out of it to remind me how truly wonderful this book is.
Liz Greene has written for me the best book I have ever read- all the more astonishing as her speciality is astrology- something i dont believe in at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars The life of Nostradamus 10 Mar 2014
By Acheson
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a well researched and fascinating book about Michel de Notredame, who we know as Nostradamus, and tells how he was blessed with clairvoyance at the time of the Inquisition when such a thing could lead to being burnt at the stake. The reader gets to know him as a real person rather than just a name.
