Patricia Anthony
[Cover] Flanders
Ace hard cover
The author of the surprising God's Fires and Cold Allies changes subjects abruptly once again, this time with a tale that may slip outside of the genre altogether. Former Harvard medical student Travis Stanhope is now a private and expert sharpshooter in the British army during World War I. Each night he ventures forth into No-Man's land and waits for dawn, when he begins the methodical killing of troops in the German trenches. As his mind and body slowly become numb to the horror around him, Stanhope finds that his dreams are, strangely, becoming more and more real -- dreams of a calico angel and the dead are all round him, ghosts unwilling to leave the battlefield. "Mesmerizing stuff, highly textured and brimming with insight." -- Kirkus Reviews.

Publication date: July, 1998

An involving novel of religion and history from the author of Cradle of Splendor and Flanders. "In sixteenth-century Portugal, where the Inquisition protects the true word of God, Father Manoel Pessoa has begun to hear strange confessions from the villagers of Quintas. Glowing lights in the sky. Angels who lie with women. A virgin birth. At the root of the tales is a falling star, which struck the earth with three strange beings aboard. Angels, devils, or something more? That is the burning question -- quite literally. For the Inquisition is abroad, and the fate of many may depend on the answer...."
