Summary
"A year of bones, of grave-dirt, relentless work. Of mummified corpses and chanting priests. A year of rape, suicide, sudden death. Of friendship too. Of desire. Of love...A year unlike any other he has lived. Deep in the heart of Paris, its oldest cemetery is, by 1785, overflowing, tainting the very breath of those who live nearby. Into their midst comes Jean-Baptiste Baratte, a young, provincial engineer charged by the king with demolishing it. At first Baratte sees this as a chance to clear the burden of history, a fitting task for a modern man of reason. But before long, he begins to suspect that the destruction of the cemetery might be a prelude to his own." --Back cover

On the cusp of the French Revolution, a young, ambitious engineer of humble origins is summoned to Versailles for a royal commission - to clear the overflowing cemetery of Les Innocents in the heart of Paris. Convincing himself it is for the greater good and a way of clearing the burden of history, Jean-Baptiste Barratte sets about his unwelcome task. What he doesn't foresee are the dramas, violence and calamities it triggers, or that it will bring an unusual woman into his life. By the time the last bone has been removed, the transformation of Les Innocents has irrevocably changed him and his future
