This book is an interesting historical fiction that addresses the issue of female mystics and the church who battled them. ( )

Wow, two great books about inquisitors in 2016 (the other is [book:The Inquisitor's Tale: Or, The Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog|29358517]).

I listened to the audiobook and it was great (you can always count on Jayne Entwistle). I imagine if I'd read the text I'd have been doing a lot of guessing as to how to pronounce things.

My first thought upon finishing this was that it's is a great choice for fans of [book:Code Name Verity|11925514]. Both books are about female heroes standing up to authority. They're both compelling and sad. Both excellent.

Dolssa de Stigata feels called to preach, despite being condemned by the Inquisition as an “unnatural woman.” When Botille finds the dying Dolssa on a hillside and decides to protect her, it may cost her everything.

The research and writing of this (including narrative structure and characterization) deserve at least four stars, but this was a heartbreaking read, and I can't in good conscience say I "really liked it" when just thinking over the journey of reading it makes my throat tight and my chest ache. Three stars is the best compromise I can manage—and that mostly in honor of the handful of moments when I felt a genuine connection, even if reluctant, to the events or emotions playing out in the text.

I am very glad, though, to see the promise Julie Berry showed in The Amaranth Enchantment, which I read years ago, has been proven in this novel. And as I said then, I look forward to reading more of her work. ( )

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-.
