This is actually the second book in "A Catherine LeVendeur Mystery" series. i did not tead the first one. However the details in the book often hint back at past evcents so it's not like you would not be able to understand it without reading the first one.

Ths book is about a girl who is a young noice scholar residing at a Convent, who falls in love and leaves the place where she had grown up. Though she left the church, she finds that her path still revolves around the arguements between the bible and philosophy. some famous people are actually named in the book, like Peter Abelard the famous philosopher and his wife, the beautiful Heloise who later becomes a nun.

This is a really interesting book because I'm not necessarly into the teachings of the bible but i am into the idea of bibke studies.This book talks about how philosophers can be challenge the ideas raised in the holy bible and still believein it's teachings. It raises questions like what does it mean to be a true Christain and does being Christain mean that it should dictate every aspect of life.
