Review from Dorothy Houghton

A very detailed insight into Avignon life in 1348 when the town was devastated by the Black Death or Plague. The author develops the characters well. By the end of the novel, I felt I really knew the main man, Marius, Pope Clément and had greatly warmed to the elusive Alice!

As with John Bentley’s other novels, Baudet is strongly character-driven. You will love this excellent novel.


John has woven together both new characters and well-loved old ones into another fine tale of old France.

John Bentley’s knowledge of time and place shine through to make this a gripping insight into 14th century Avignon.
