Sebastian Faure is only fifteen years old when he meets the young nobleman Balthazar de Creon. De Creon, struck by the boy's beauty as much as his talent as a herbal healer, orders Sebastian to his manor so he can instruct him in the ways of the court. His motives are however clouded by his lust and after a brief period of restraint, Balthazar and Sebastian abandon themselves to their passions and imaginations. But in 1749 their affair scandalizes the French court and Balthazar is faced with a heartbreaking ultimatum: repudiate Sebastien and live, or do not and die.

About the Publisher

Europa Editions

Europa Editions

Europa Editions is an independent publisher of literary fiction, non-fiction, and high-end crime fiction based in New York and London. The company was founded in 2005 by Sandro Ferri and Sandra Ozzola Ferri, who are also the owners and publishers of the Italian press, Edizioni E/O. The idea behind the creation of Europa Editions was to capitalize on Edizioni E/O’s deep roots in European publishing to bring fresh voices to the American and British markets and to provide quality English editions of international literature that had a distinct look and consistently high level of editorial standards. The Europa catalog is eclectic, reflecting the founders’ belief that dialogue between nations and cultures is of vital importance and that this exchange is facilitated by literature chosen not only for its ability to entertain and fascinate, but also to inform and enlighten.
