The City of Tears is a breathtaking novel of revenge, persecution and loss.

Following on from the Sunday Times number one bestseller, The Burning Chambers, Kate Mosses The City of Tears is a breathtaking novel of revenge, persecution and loss.

June 1572: for ten, violent years the Wars of Religion have raged across France. Neighbours have become enemies, countless lives have been lost, and the country has been torn apart over matters of religion, citizenship and sovereignty. But now a precarious peace is in the balance: a royal wedding has been negotiated by Catherine de Medici and Jeanne dAlbret, an alliance between the Catholic Crown and Henri, the Huguenot king of Navarre. It is a marriage that could see France reunited at last.

Meanwhile in Puivert, an invitation has arrived for Minou Joubert and her family to attend this historic wedding in Paris in August. But what Minou does not know is that the Joubert family's oldest enemy, Vidal, will also be there. Nor that, within days of the marriage, on the eve of the Feast Day of St Bartholomew, Minous family will be scattered to the four winds and one of her beloved children will have disappeared without trace . . .

Sweeping from Paris and Chartres to the City of Tears itself the great refugee city of Amsterdam this is a story of one family's fight to stay together, to survive and to find each other, against the devastating tides of history . . .

A gorgeously written, utterly absorbing epic . . . I absolutely loved it - Lucy Foley

This is historical fiction to devour. Nobody does it like Kate Mosse - Anthony Horowitz, on The Burning Chambers
