Crippled sixteen-year-old Catalina is the one person unable to join in the festivities of the Feast of the Assumption. But then she has a vision of the Virgin, and is miraculously cured. In the dark days of the Spanish Inquisition, such a claim to blessedness has serious consequences, especially when Catalina seems more inclined to obey her heart than the demands of the Church. The last of Maugham's novels, Catalina is a romantic celebration of Spain and a delightfully mischievous satire on absolutism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"One of my favourite writers" -- Gabriel Garcia Marquez
"The modern writer who has influenced me the most" -- George Orwell
"In his prime, he evolved a clear and effective prose style that achieved a quality possessed only by master story-tellers, making the reader greedy for more....From an era that produced George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells and John Galsworthy, Maugham is the great survivor" * Economist *
