Set in eighteenth century France, The Philospher's Kiss is a well-researched study of the origins of the Encyclopedia and the life and loves of one of its creators, Diderot.
This fascintating story takes you back in time to witness firsthand the clashes of an age in which new ideas could kill you. The book is historical fiction at its best with characters both uplifting and entertaining.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.
