Description: This breathtaking tale is part adventure story, part legend, and part Gothic novel. By the fiftieth year of his reign, Louis XIV has made France the most powerful state in the Western world. Yet the Sun King's appetite for glory knows no bounds. In a bold stroke, he sends his natural philosopher on an expedition to seek the source of immortality: a rare, perhaps mythical, sea monster. When Father Yves de la Croix returns with the shrieking, gargoyle-faced creature, Marie-Josephe looks forward to assisting her adored brother with his scientific study. Yet the creature's gaze and exquisite singing foretell a different future. Soon Marie-Josephe finds herself contemplating choices that will defy the institutions which power her world--king, country, church, and even family. She must find the courage to follow her heart and her convictions--even at the cost of changing her life forever. A sensitive investigation of the integrity in all of us, The Moon and the Sun is destined to become a visionary classic.
