Paris in the year 1117. Heloise, a young scholar reputed to be the cleverest woman in France, arrives in the city bent on entering its masculine world of learning. Thwarted, she is astonished when the brilliant, radical philosopher, Peter Abelard, consents to be her tutor in exchange for lodgings with her uncle. But what starts out as a meeting of minds turns into a passionate, dangerous love affair, that sends shockwaves through the country and incurs terrible retribution. Nine centures later Arthur, an English academic, is in Paris to recreate the true story of Heloise and Abelard in a novel, aiming to bring Heloise out of history's shadows. To his surprise, his daughter Julia comes to visit and agrees to help, challenging his portraits of a couple who seem sometimes inscrutable, sometimes breathtakingly modern in their beliefs and behaviour. As Julia spars with her father, it emerges that she is on her own mission to discover more about her parents' fractured relationship - and that Arthur's connection to his subject is more emotional than he cares to admit.
