Reading a real page turner, breath holder of a mystery. Takes place in France in 1148. there are lots of real characters in this story of church polictics and intrigue. The story of Heloise and Abelard come into the intrigue. At this point Abelard is dead but Heloise lives on as the Abbess of the Convent of The Paraclete. the story revolves around the Council of Clerics called by Pope Euserius in the city of Reims. A couple of murders are committed and Astrolabe, the son of Heloise and Abelard is accused. His friends work to prove his innocence. How could any one name their baby Astrolabe. If you don't know what an astrolabe is, google it. Yes, Astrolabe was indeed a real person as were his parents. Their story is extremely interesting, The love affair of the 12th century.
