It's December 1945, and the Second World War is finally over. Mathilde, a young French Red Cross doctor, finds herself in Warsaw treaEng the last of the French soldiers returning from the front. One night, a nun appears at the clinic, begging Mathilde to follow her back to the convent on urgent business. What Mathilde finds there is shocking: a holy sister about to give birth. As Mathilde enters the sisters' fiercely private world, secrets rise to the surface, and modernism and science clash with faith and tradiEon. The nuns go about their strict daily rituals, but inside the convent's chilly stone walls, echoing with their melancholic chants, a dangerous revoluEon is taking place.

When an English couple named Gemma and Charles Bovery move into a small Normandy town, Martin Joubert, the baker and resident Flaubert fan, can’t believe it. Here are two real life figures who seem to be replicating the behaviour of his favourite fictional characters right before his eyes.

A gripping tale of love, lust and the power of friendship that charts the unconventional and passionate affairs embarked on by two lifelong friends. This beautiful and heart-wrenching story follows Lil and Roz, who fall in love with each other's teenaged sons. Afraid of facing the ire and judgment of their insular seaside community, the two affairs continue over the years in secret, until their discovery threatens to tear apart the new lives and families of the young men, who must eventually choose between following a well-worn path, or following their true desires.

REVIEWS Adoration - Mum's the word
