Ambitious and skilfully constructed...Mosse has an instinctive feel for narrative momentum...The Burning Chambers is a tour de force, a compelling adventure that views the past with insight, compassion, and humor, and reminds us of the variety of women's voices so often forgotten in the official accounts. Observer (UK)
First-rate cloak and dagger excitement—who knew the religious wars between Catholics and Huguenots in sixteenth century France could be so riveting to modern audiences? Kate Mosse captures the details of life in the Languedoc region of France, famed for its beauty, but hiding many secrets, in this masterful novel. Margaret George, author of The Confessions of Young Nero
"[Mosse’s] plotting and pacing are impeccable. So is her ability to bring to life an extraordinarily complex conflict and era, as well as a vast cast of both fictional and historical figures…[A] deeply satisfying, richly imagined novel.” Washington Post
“Hattie Morahan’s similarly quiet voice threads through this story…Morahan’s slow, precise, and melodious performance lulls the listener into thinking all is well while tensions and fear abound…The novel, based on complex religious wars and migrations over three hundred years, comes to life in Morahan’s dulcet, cultured, yet minimally inflected narration. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
