À propos

In this gothic tale reminiscent of Faulkner''s Light in August , a young woman''s journals divulge the horrible secrets of a wealthy family in late nineteenth-century rural France. Before he is called to bless the body of a woman at the nearby asylum, Father Gabriel receives a strange, troubling confession: hidden under the woman''s dress he will find the notebooks in which she confided the abuses she suffered and the twisted motivations behind them. And so Rose''s terrible story comes to light after her untimely death. At fourteen years old, she is sold to a rich man by her father, a farmer too poor to cover her cost of living. Once in her new home, she becomes caught in a perverse web, manipulated by those society considers her betters. The English-language debut of critically acclaimed author Franck Bouysse, this exquisitely written novel is both a keen social commentary and a chilling horror story.
