Summary
An illiterate 15th-century portrait painter, grieving the sudden death of the woman he loved, takes refuge at the monastery at Mont-Saint-Michel, an island off the coast of France, where a monk assigns him the task of copying a manuscript. His work slowly heals him and grows the monastery's library, all under the shadow of the invention of the printing press. And it's there, five centuries later, that a novelist tries to find her words again
