Waterstones Says

The final instalment of the sweeping Joubert Family Chronicles spans centuries as two descendants of the dynasty seek answers about the disappearance of a third, who vanished from the Cape of Good Hope in the early seventeenth century.

A sweeping and epic story of adventure and hardship, injustice and triumph, The Map of Bones by Kate Mosse is the sequel to the No. 1 bestselling The Ghost Ship, and the fourth — and final — novel of The Joubert Family Chronicles.

Olifantshoek, 1688. When the violent Cape wind blows from the south-east, they say the voices of the unquiet dead can be heard whispering through the deserted valley. Suzanne Joubert, a Huguenot refugee from war-torn France, is here to walk in her cousin’s footsteps. Louise Reydon-Joubert, the notorious she-captain and pirate commander, landed at the Cape of Good Hope more than sixty years ago, then disappeared from the record as if she had never existed. Suzanne has come to find her — to lay the stories to rest. But all is not as it seems . . .

Franschhoek, 1862. Nearly one hundred and eighty years after Suzanne’s perilous journey, another intrepid and courageous woman of the Joubert family — Isabelle Lepard — has journeyed to the small frontier town once known as Oliftantshoek in search of her long-lost relations. A journalist and travel writer, intent on putting the women of her family back into the history books, she quickly discovers that the tragedies and crimes of the past are far from over. Isabelle faces a race against time if she is not only going to discover the truth but escape with her life . . .

Mosse can tell a story . . . plunge relentlessly and breathlessly in alongside Louise and Gilles in their maritime adventure - The Times on The Ghost Ship

Beautifully written and engaging from the first page, keeping you guessing until the end - Independent on The Ghost Ship

A gripping, thrilling page-turner, richly imagined and impeccably told - Toronto Star on The Ghost Ship

A gorgeously written, utterly absorbing epic and, despite being set in the sixteenth century, has some very pertinent messages for our time about the evils of religious persecution and the transcendent power of love and family. In case it’s not clear enough yet, I absolutely LOVED it - Lucy Foley, author of The Hunting Party, on The City of Tears

Magnificent, epic - Marian Keyes, author of Grown Ups, on The City of Tears

[A] dramatic, immersive tale of secrets, conspiracies, fanaticism and loss - Daily Mail on The City of Tears

Mosse is a master storyteller, balancing thrilling suspense with complex characters and a thoughtful exploration of a fascinating time in history. Her heroine Minou is a pleasure to root for: clever, loving, down-to-earth and courageous! - Madeline Miller, author of The Song of Achilles and Circe, on The Burning Chambers

Mosse’s fans will relish this tale of secrets, love and treachery - The Times on The Burning Chambers

The Burning Chambers is a tour de force, a compelling adventure that views the past with insight, compassion and humour, and reminds us of the variety of women’s voices so often forgotten in the official accounts - The Observer on The Burning Chambers
