The Winter Ghosts by Kate Mosse

Cover of The Winter Ghosts by Kate Mosse

The Winter Ghosts is a beautifully-written novel about a young man whose brother was killed in World War I, who travels in the French Pyrenees in the hope that he will heal his emotional wounds. Stranded in a blizzard, he finds a remote village and meets a young woman who tells him a horrific story of the massacre of a Christian sect in the Middle Ages. But there is more going on than meets the eye. Time travel, ghosts, or the protagonist's imagination? It is up to the reader to decide.

Now I’m sharing what I found with you all in hopes to inspire more people to become amateur chefs with me.
