The book

When Captain John Lacroix returns home from Spain, wounded, unconscious, and alone, he believes that he has seen the worst of what men may do. It is 1809, and in England’s wars against Napoleon, the Battle of Corunna stands out as a humiliation: a once-proud army forced to retreat, civilized men reduced to senseless acts of cruelty.

Slowly regaining his health, Lacroix journeys north to the misty isles of Scotland with the intent of forgetting the horrors of the war. Unbeknownst to him, however, something else has followed him back from the war—something far more dangerous than a memory. . .

Praise for Andrew Miller

“His writing is vivid, precise, and constantly surprising. It reads easily, suspends life until it is read and is a source of wonder and delight.” —Hilary Mantel, Sunday Times

“Andrew Miller . . . is another Hilary Mantel. Pure [is] elegantly written and intricately constructed, with an ending that, like those mirrors at Versailles, cleverly reflects the beginning.”—The New York Times
