9780615503066: Frostworks

Set amidst the turmoil of the student uprising in 1968 Paris, 'Frostworks' follows a young Czech émigré seeking to unravel the sordid family history that drives her lover to self-mutilation. Seven years after her first girlfriend's suicide led to a vengeful attack that nearly claimed her own life, Milena Beranovà is still trying to forget. As a politically engaged student at the university of Nanterre, Milena has no shortage of friends and comrades, but she lets no one get too close - until she meets Louise de Benoît, a young recluse estranged from her aristocratic family. Sensing a kindred spirit in the young woman, Milena allows their friendship to develop into something more. From the start, their fragile romance is overshadowed by the mysterious wounds that keep appearing on Louise's arms. Louise insists that the cuts in her skin are caused by accidents. But with each new injury, Milena finds it harder to accept this explanation. When a relative suggests that the truth about a childhood trauma may hold the key to Louise's suffering, Milena agrees to help investigate. Between demonstrations and increasingly brutal clashes with the police in the streets of Paris, she embarks on a journey into the secret lives of the de Benoîts. What she discovers puts her on a collision course with Louise's violent past...
