Three complementary and emotionally intelligent stories set against the destruction of three vastly different cultures and belief systems - all having been based near or in Avignon. Complex and historically rich, this book blends and interogates humanism and faith. One of the best books that I read last year!

An interesting and troubling book, goes from epoch to epoch around the excavation of a Roman home, offering vignettes of people associated with the place in the past and present--most disturbing is the World War II epoch, but the recreation of late antiquity is absolutely breathtaking--seems like it MUST have been like that at the end of the Roman Empire in Provence.
