EVERY STORY IS THE STORY OF A SECRET

This is a story that unfolds across two far-flung centuries, across two worlds. In each, the lives of a father and his two daughters are about to be catapulted into crisis.

France. 1284. In the heat of an August night, Christina-sister of Marguerite, daughter of the heretic sculptor Giles of Beauvais-struggles to keep a secret. The year is also 2001. We're in Chicago, where Christina Carver, daughter of rebel physicist Dr Giles Carver, also keeps a secret, even from her sister Maggie. When a bell rings for matins-when a telephone rings in the middle of the night-Christina will fail to wake and all six lives will change forever.

The plot line in this story made no sense, and did not come together even in the last chapter. There is supposed to be some mystical law of physics that touches the lives of 2 young women who both 'die' in their sleep but are some how revived, perhaps due to an inexplicable M-theory which random laws touch the two Christines through time. The characters are undeveloped, the references to the physicis research are oblique and the odd reaction of the medieval church to this temporary death is never fully explained. Reading this was a complete waste of time.
