His return pulls Jasmine, Ursulas daughter, back into the fold. Once believed to be the most powerful of the Catalains, she foreswore her gift to bury a shameful secret. The ghost of the murdered man also calls home Katrine, Jasmines sister, who has been banished for fourteen years.

Told in a majestic mosaic of strong womens voices, The Catalain Book of Secrets weaves together alchemy, hope, tragedy, and true love to spin a tale in the style of Garden Spells, Eva Luna, and Practical Magic.
