Earlier this month, I read Labyrinth by Kate Mosse (that’s not Kate Moss – at least, I don’t think it is – but she must get that a lot), set partly in the early 1200s and partly today.

I thought the book was half very good (1200s) and half so-so (present). The best part was that it left me wanting to see the mysterious walled city of Carcassonne – badly. So I’m going. Tomorrow I fly to Montpellier, and then hop on the train for Carcassonne and surrounds.

Stay tuned!
