bookshelves: alternate-history
Read in December, 2009

A fascinating alternate history, Pavane is made up of 6 chapters (and an afterword: "Coda"*) that are linked - not obviously - to tell the story of an England under the control of the Roman Catholic church due to the assassination of Elizabeth I. It's dense book, but well worth it.
*The coda reminded me a bit of A Canticle for Leibowitz
