Introduction

A New York Times Bestseller

The Gargoyle: the mesmerizing story of one man's descent into personal hell and his quest for salvation.

On a dark road in the middle of the night, a car plunges into a ravine. The driver survives the crash, but his injuries confine him to a hospital burn unit. There the mysterious Marianne Engel, a sculptress of grotesques, enters his life. She insists they were lovers in medieval Germany, when he was a mercenary and she was a scribe in the monastery of Engelthal. As she spins the story of their past lives together, the man's disbelief falters; soon, even the impossible can no longer be dismissed.

  "The Gargoyle"by aleddy (see profile) 09/08/12

Very interesting, and we all loved the author's use of sarcasm/wit. Yeah for historical fiction!

The graphic nature of the subject matter may be too delicate for some book club members, but if most posess an open mind, could make for livey discussion. Good for those who like a little fantasy mixed... (read more)

I read this book a few years ago and it rates up at the top of one of my favorite books ever! Absolutely awe inspiring, read it! You won't be sorry!

 
  "Excellent story."by Tbaker123 (see profile) 06/21/11

It captured my attention quickly. May be graphic at first, but slowly unveils an excellent story that is not easily forgotten.

 
  "The Gargoyle keeps you guessing"by lizblair (see profile) 05/06/11

This book gives allot of insight into a recovering burn victim. It also brings you through points of history that make you think.
