In this 2017 Michael L. Printz Award Honor Book, Botille Flasucra, a 17-year-old peasant girl matchmaker in 13th-century southern France, meets Dolssa de Stigata, an 18-year-old noblewoman mystic on the run from the Inquisition.  Condemned to burn to death as a heretic, Dolssa is hidden by Botille and her family and friends. Fiona Hardingham reads Dolssa’s sections in a refined voice, while Jayne Entwistle gives appropriate accents tp Botille, her sisters, and the other peasants in Bajas, where the sisters run a tavern. Allan Corduner’s deep voice fits the Dominican Inquisitors. The narrators smoothly handle the many words of dialect included in the story. The author reads her detailed historical notes and a glossary at the end.  The audiobook is a plus for proper pronunciation of the Occitan words used in the novel, but I also enjoyed looking at a print copy to see how they were spelled.  The ending is a little confusing - the author explains it here:  http://www.julieberrybooks.com/about-the-ending-to-the-passion-of-.

Woooooooow ... to read/listen to the additional information at the end, to learn that while this novel was fiction it was based on history. I'm curious how this novel would have effected me when I was a devout Catholic ... because I'm kind of glad it was written now that I'm not a devout Catholic, at all. More people should know the lies/crap that the Church does ... :-(

The Passion of Dolssa draws from an unusual source for Young Adult- it is based on a Christian text from thirteenth-century France. There are many people who remember the violence of the crusades and pray that maybe now they can be safe again. But the church is determined to rid the land entirely of all those that they deem heretics.

Throughout the four-hundred-plus page novel, the writing remains unwaveringly passionate. (Ha! Because the title has "Passion" in it! Good word play, Emily!) But in all seriousness: The story is told mostly from the points of view of Botille and Dolssa, with a few other characters mixed in, such as Friar Lucien. I loved Botille and her sisters. They were such a wonderful group and they had a great dynamic. I also enjoyed the focus on the relationship of the Botille and her sisters along with Dolssa.

As I read, I felt the desperation, fear, love, joy, anger... everything Botille and Dolssa went through I felt viscerally. This is due in part to the fact that the story is based off of the written record of a Friar Arnaut, and the idea that the story could be real, or some part of it could be, enlivens every page.

Do I believe? I think there is a kernel of truth in every story.

What do you think? ( )
