". . .a warm-hearted exploration of faith, love, and the painful moments in life. . ."

Agnes Morel is nobody important. To the people of the small town of Chartres, France she has simply always been there; like the stained glass windows of their great Notre Dame cathedral, or the rooms they pay her to clean for them. No one in town ever presumes that a meek girl who spends her days silently cleaning the woodwork of the great cathedral could have a secret past, let alone a violent one. And that is fine with Agnes Morel, for she does not want to remember it either.

But when someone from Anges’ past turns up unexpectedly in Chartres spewing ugly accusations about insanity and attempted murder, the townspeople begin to wonder if “the cleaner of Chartres” is more than just a quiet young girl in need of a job – they begin to wonder if she is a possible danger to them all.

Filled with amazingly rich characters, a perfectly timed plot line, and a heroine that you just don’t want to see fail, “The Cleaner of Chartres,” is a warm-hearted exploration of faith, love, and the painful moments in life that take us to the brink of insanity and the people who are there to pull us back.
