In 1891, young Leonie Vernier arrive at the home of a young, willowy, and beautiful aunt in southwest France. Villagers claim that Leonie's late uncle died after summoning a demon from the old Visigoth sepulchre on its grounds. More than a century later an American graduate student, arrives to the same town while researching the life of Claude Debussy. There, a pack of Tarot cards and a piece of 19th-century music known as Sepulchre 1891 hold the key to her fate just as they did to the fate of Leonie Vernier.

Both parts of this story take place in France, so there's quite a lot of French spoken, and it's a pleasure to hear the always delightful Donada Peters's pitch-perfect handling of this beautiful language. It's easy to see why Peters is an audio listener's favorite for her unfailing ability to deliver fully realized characters. In October of 1891, Anatole Vernier and his family attract the wrath of one truly evil, syphilis-riddled psychopath. Witnessing the devastation he causes, sister Leonie is forced to consider turning to the supernatural for help. In 2007, Meredith Martin, an American researching Debussy, stumbles upon Leonie's story through a pack of tarot cards painted by Leonie herself.
