about

Her mother executed for witchcraft, her father dead at the hand of a noble, Victoire Charpentier vows to rise above her poor peasant roots.

 

Forced to leave her village of Lucie-sur-Vionne for domestic work in Paris, Victoire is raped and threatened by her Marquis master, and must abandon her newborn, Rubie, on the church steps.

 

Accused of a heinous crime, Victoire is imprisoned in La Salpêtrière mental asylum, where she bonds with fellow prisoner, Jeanne de Valois - conwoman of the infamous Necklace Affair that brought down Queen Marie Antoinette. She dreams of escaping the asylum but wonders if the price of freedom – losing Jeanne – is worth it.

 

Enmeshed in the fervour of the 1789 Bastille storming, Victoire hears the name ‘Rubie’ called. Could her foundling daughter be alive, and living in Paris?

 

First, standalone, novel in the French trilogy: The Bone Angel series, Spirit of Lost Angels traces the journey of a bone angel talisman passed down through generations of women of L’Auberge des Anges .

Amidst the tumult of revolutionary France, Spirit of Lost Angels is a testament to the courage of women facing tragedy, betrayal and insanity in a world where their gift can be their curse.

Editorial Reviews

.... I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE when a book sucks me in and is so engrossing that I get ticked when I have to put it down. As a reader, it made me feel as though I was being written into the pages of the book. I simply love when that happens. I always say to people that those who refuse to read indie published books lose out on dynamic novels and this book is definitely an example of why I feel that way. I would not be surprised if this is a book I find in the collection of a large publishing house in the future ... Naomi B, A Book and A Review. .... how well written and detailed the book is as the author clearly outlines the path of a commoner's life and the hardship of Victoire's life from childhood to adulthood.....very intriguing. .... an historical book about enduring, accepting, regret, love, loss, family, hope, coming home, and an angel pendant that held it all together for each of the women who wore it. 5/5 - Elizabeth of Silver's ReviewsAn incredible page turner ... Spirit of Lost Angels is an exciting novel to read with its many plot twists and high degree of conflict and emotion - Mirella Patzer ... impressed with Perrat's knowledgeable treatment of the role of women during one of France's most tumultuous times, as well as the complexities of insular village life - Darlene Williams The writing is superb, the sights, sounds and smells of a city in turmoil is brought vividly to life .... Josie Barton Spirit of Lost Angels is a tale to lose oneself in ... Liza Perrat persuasively combines fact and fiction in this engrossing novel. The peasants fury, the passion building up to the Bastille storming, and the sense of political explosion are just a few of the vivid illustrations in Spirit of Lost Angels -- Andrea Connell ... a truly astounding book that will have you reaching out to the characters, feeling for them, and fiercely cheering them on ... engrossing, absorbing and you won't be able to put this down. ... a book not to be missed ... perfect for fans of historical fiction. Megan, Reading in the Sunshine ... escapist fun -- Francophiles will want this one and those who enjoy historical fiction that doesn't focus on royals ...great fun for the summer read -- and I can't wait to see what Perrat does next. Audra, Unabridged Chick Liza Perrat brings to life the sights and sounds of 18th century France. Her extensive research shines through in her writing, from the superstitions of the villagers to the lives of the more sophisticated Parisians -- Anne Cater (Top 500 Amazon reviewer):
