1348. A bone-sculpted angel and the woman who wears it––heretic, Devil’s servant, saint. Midwife Héloïse has always known that her bastard status threatens her standing in the French village of Lucie-sur-Vionne. Yet her midwifery and healing skills have gained the people’s respect, and she has won the heart of the handsome Raoul Stonemason. The future looks hopeful. Until the Black Death sweeps into France. Fearful that Héloïse will bring the pestilence into their cottage, Raoul forbids her to treat its victims. Amidst the grief and hysteria, the villagers searching for a scapegoat, Héloïse must choose: preserve her marriage, or honour the oath she swore on her dead mother’s soul? And even as she places her faith in the protective powers of her angel talisman, she must prove she’s no Devil’s servant, her talisman no evil charm. Blood Rose Angel, from the spellbinding The Bone Angel series, tells a story of continuing family traditions, friendships overcoming adversity, and how good and evil are too often bestowed on fellow humans in the name of faith––Zoe Saadia, author of 'The Rise of the Aztecs' and 'The Peacemaker' series. Medicine, religion, and love intertwine in this captivating, richly-detailed portrait of a young woman’s search for identity as the Black Death makes its first inroads into Europe. Liza Perrat uses her training as a midwife and her experiences living in a French village to create a compelling and unforgettable heroine determined to heal the sick in a world still ruled by superstition––C. P. Lesley, author of The Golden Lynx and The Winged Horse

Review:

Blood Rose Angel, from the spellbinding The Bone Angel series, tells a story of continuing family traditions, friendships overcoming adversity, and how good and evil are too often bestowed on fellow humans in the name of faith--Zoe Saadia, author of 'The Rise of the Aztecs' and 'The Peacemaker' series. Medicine, religion, and love intertwine in this captivating, richly-detailed portrait of a young woman's search for identity as the Black Death makes its first inroads into Europe. Liza Perrat uses her training as a midwife and her experiences living in a French village to create a compelling and unforgettable heroine determined to heal the sick in a world still ruled by superstition--C. P. Lesley, author of The Golden Lynx and The Winged Horse The balance between the darkness and the light makes this book so wonderful ... an emotional reading experience. Sadness at the death of a child, joy of a birth and anger at the injustice towards women. I was deeply moved ... -- Magdalena (book blogger) I could not tear myself away ... Liza Perrat has now joined the ranks of my favorite authors. The first few pages hook you and never let up. I tore through this book so quickly I was sad when it ended. Yes ... that enjoyable -- Melinda (book blogger) For me Heloise represents those forgotten women, intelligent, brave and indomitable who have formed the heart and soul of every town and village throughout history. Wonderful -- Chris Curran, author of Mindsight. Liza Perrat paints an enthralling picture of the ignorance and superstition that allowed the plague to spread inexorably and unchecked. The author is particularly gifted at transporting you to the historical setting and everyday detail of people's lives -- Vanessa Couchman, author of The House at Zaronza. One of those books that once started was impossible to put down and yet at the same time one of those novels that you didn't want to pick up knowing that every page read was a page closer to having to say goodbye to some wonderful characters not to mention the end of an exceptional trilogy -- Tracy Terry (book blogger). Héloïse is a strong and inspiring main character; an amazing woman to guide you to a very dark chapter in history -- Maryline (book blogger). I loved Heloise's character ... a strong woman ... sure of her powers of healing. She oozes confidence through most of the book. I also liked how the author included a lot on the methods that Heloise would have used as a midwife during the time period -- Meg, A Bookish Affair. Liza Perrat has quickly become one of my favourite authors. In her new sweeping tale, Blood Rose Angel, emotions overwhelmed me right from the start and kept me on the edge of my seat with my heart in my throat right through to the last page, when I sat there stunned that it was all over. It was like leaving a best friend behind -- Cindy, (Book Blogger). ... the author's medical background, her artistic brush strokes in language, and the so deftly integrated literary devices elevate this novel to a very fine work of historical (and literary quality) fiction ... I was sad when the story ended --- will particularly miss Midwife Heloise. Though well suited to the story path, the climax and ending of BLOOD ROSE ANGEL did suggest a possible sequel.... We can hope! ... BLOOD ROSE ANGEL is a page-turner, but written with a nice balance of action and description -- Bernice L. Rocque, Author of Until the Robin Walks on Snow. With flawless and progressive characterization and each characters emoting to dot, the story was simply magnetic. I had to finish the book off! -- Shree, Book Blogger
