I think if I read Joanne Harris' books all at once, the similarities would be too much. As light reading in between other books, though, it's lovely.

I am Soeur Auguste-who I was does not concern us: not yet, anyway. The abbey is perhaps the only refuge where the past may be left behind. But the past is a sly sickness. It may be carried on a breath of wind; in the sound of a flute; on the feet of a dancer. Too late, as always, I see this now; but there is nowhere for me to go but forward. It begins with the players. Who knows where it may end?

You still won’t find Le Devin on any map, but if you go to the westernmost point of the island of Noirmoutier (it’s called La Pointe du Devin) and look out to sea, who knows? You may get luck. ackground. The idea for this book came to me from a French history text, in which I found a passing reference to the stringent reform of an abbey in Port-Royal by a newly-appointed Mother.

Holy Fools is the story of Juliette, a street acrobat who becomes infatuated with Guy LeMerle, a mysterious, corrupt and beautiful young man who leads his outrageous, satirical dance troupe from town to town in plague-torn, politically volatile 17th-century France. Joanne Harris fought hard for LeMerle.

In fact, he is a kind of existential hero. Championed by his stubborn author, LeMerle survived and strutted forth on the page unchanged and unrepentant.

Suddenly she stiffened. Holy Mother! The silence! The penance! I shushed her furiously. This performance was for his benefit, and he knew it. Mère Isabelle stood next to him, watching us with lips slightly parted. This was more like it, I thought fiercely. It took three of us-Germaine, Marguerite, and a deaf nun called Soeur Clothilde-to hold her, to pry open her mouth to stop her from swallowing her tongue, and even then she continued to scream until finally Père Colombin himself came to bless her, and she lay rigid and still against him. At that point Isabelle turned on me.
