But the cathedral isn't the empty edifice it appears to be. Its history is very much alive in the present day-and it's calling out to Ned.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Ned Marriner is spending springtime with his father in Provence, where the celebrated photographer is shooting images for a glossy coffee- table book.
While his father photographs the cathedral of Aix-en- Provence, Ned explores the shadowy interior with Kate Wenger, an American exchange student who has a deep knowledge of the area's history. They surprise an intruder in a place where he should not be: "I think you ought to go now" he tells them, drawing a knife. "You have blundered into a corner of a very old story."
In this sublime and ancient part of the world, where borders between the living and the long-dead are most vulnerable, Ned and those close to him are about to be drawn into a haunted tale, as mythic figures from conflicts of long ago erupt into the present, changing and claiming lives.
