The Cleaner of Chartres | [Salley Vickers]

The Cleaner of Chartres

There is something special about the ancient cathedral in Chartres, with its mismatched spires, astonishing stained glass, and strange labyrinth. And there is something special, too, about Agnès Morel, the mysterious woman who is to be found cleaning it each morning. No one knows where she came from - not diffident Abbé Paul, who discovered her one morning 20 years ago, sleeping in the north porch; nor lonely Professor Jones, whose chaotic existence she helps to organise; nor Philippe Nevers, whose neurotic sister and newborn child she cares for; nor even the irreverent young restorer, Alain Fleury, who works alongside her each day.

Publisher's Summary

There is something special about the ancient cathedral in Chartres, with its mismatched spires, astonishing stained glass, and strange labyrinth. And there is something special, too, about Agnès Morel, the mysterious woman who is to be found cleaning it each morning. No one knows where she came from - not diffident Abbé Paul, who discovered her one morning 20 years ago, sleeping in the north porch; nor lonely Professor Jones, whose chaotic existence she helps to organise; nor Philippe Nevers, whose neurotic sister and newborn child she cares for; nor even the irreverent young restorer, Alain Fleury, who works alongside her each day. Yet everyone she encounters would agree that she has touched their lives in subtly transformative ways.

But with a chance meeting in the cathedral, the spectre of Agnès' past returns. As ugly rumours spread, Agnès is forced to confront her history, and the mystery of her origins finally unfolds....

    "I want to go to Chartres!"

    A lovely story a lot of which is set in the cathedral in Chartres. The narration is perfect bringing to life the sights, sounds and smells of the old cathedral as well as the many characters that frequent it.

    "UNUSUAL TITLE"

    i REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK - i WAS NOT SURE WHETHER IT WAS GOING TO BE A TIME-TRAVELLER OR A MODERN VERSION OF A MEDIAEVAL STORY BUT IT WAS A MIXTURE OF VARIOUS TIME PERIODS RELATING TO A SET OF CHARACTERS EACH WITH A DIFFERENT BUT CONNECTING STORY. I PARTICULARLY LIKED THE DETAILS OF THE CATHEDRALS ART WORKS AND ARCHITECTURE WHICH BROUGHT THE STORY TO LIFE. I HAVE NOT READ ANY OF THIS AUTHOR;S WORKS BUT WILL TRY TO DO SO NOW.

    "Charming tale"

    A charming tale of the underdog plugging away at life despite circumstances conspiring to hammer her into the ground. Wonderful characters which leap off the page. I wanted to cheer by the last chapter!
