Review

‘A magical novel.’ Lisa Tuttle, Time Out

‘Audacious feats of the imagination. This rich and complex novel is both harrowing and compelling.’ Nicola Humble, TLS

‘A rich deep well of stories as fantastic as dreams.’ Anne Chisholm, Observer

‘Seductive, earthy, shocking and emotional.’ Woman’s Journal

From the Back Cover

'"Audacious feats of the imagination. This rich and complex novel is both harrowing and compelling."'
NICOLA HUMBLE, 'TLS'

As Marie Louise de Bourbon, niece of Louis XIV, journeys south to marry the Spanish King, she is forced to abandon the cumbersome orange trees brought from her beloved Versailles, leaving them to wither in the Pyrenees. This loss presages her future in a court riven by intrigue. Marie's fate is dreamed of by Francisca de Luarca, who sits in a prison cell far from the Queen's chamber. This imaginative Castilian silk grower's daughter, the same age as the Queen, has fallen passionately in love with a young priest.

In this luscious, hypnotic novel, Kathryn Harrison twists together their stories, bringing to vivid life the wonders and the horrors of seventeenth-century Spain, a world convulsed by poverty and religious upheaval.

'"A rich deep well of stories as fantastic as dreams."'
ANNE CHISHOLM, 'Observer'

'"In this exquisite book Harrison rises above the historical novel to deliver a tale with all the vitality of today. Spellbinding."'
'New Woman'

'"Kathryn Harrison writes about the dark side of a women's destiny with an intensity that makes you shiver."'
'She'
