Overview

The book that the whole literary world can t stop talking about. "Marie Claire" (Australia)
A considerable achievement. Sarah Dunant, "The New York Times Book Review"

England, 1255: Sarah is only seventeen when she chooses to become an anchoress, a holy woman shut away in a small cell, measuring seven by nine paces, at the side of the village church. Fleeing the grief of losing a much-loved sister as well as the pressure to marry, she decides to renounce the world with all its dangers, desires, and temptations and commit herself to a life of prayer. But when she starts hearing the voice of the previous anchoress whispering to her, seemingly from the stones themselves, it soon becomes clear that even the thick, unforgiving walls of Sarah s cell cannot protect her as well as she had thought.

An absorbing story of faith, desire, shame, fear, and the human need for connection, "The Anchoress "by Robyn Cadwallader is a haunting and compelling novel: both quietly heartbreaking and thrillingly unpredictable."
