The Book of Splendor is an historical novel about the most unlikely of lovers, interwoven with the mysticism of the Jewish occult, and replete with the political tension and court intrigue of seventeenth-century Prague. At the heart of the novel is Rochel, a bastard seamstress who escapes poverty through an arranged marriage, but falls in love with the Golem created by Rabbi Loew to protect the Jewish community. Meanwhile, Emperor Rudolph II risks the safety of all Prague in his mad bid for immortality.
Frances Sherwood lives in South Bend, Indiana.

Editorial Reviews

"The Book of Splendor is not just a title but truth in labeling...stunning....[Sherwood] is the rare writer whose work goes far beyond what we think of as historical novels."
