Historical fiction provokes discussion of themes of justice and ethics
This retelling of an actual 12th century French court case was made into a well respected movie. A book group reading of it offered one of the best discusssions in the 20+ years of book group selctions. It ranks with the Nobel winning Saramagu's book 'Blindness' for a timeless story of personal and societal conflict. The conflict between truth, brutality, justice, gender, fidelity is not easily settled. The discussion that results is deep and endless.
