A Place of Light

An earthy and lyrical novel of redemption set in 12th-century France. The historical figure at its center, Robert of Arbrissel, was an intinerant priest who founded the Abbey of Fontevraud as a refuge for women but was accused of improper relations with them. This novel imagines the inner life of Robert and of three of his closest followers.
