In Mj Roë's mesmerizing The Seven Turns of the Snail's Shell, readers are treated to a novel as intriguing as it is inspired. With imaginative twists and turns, the author has crafted a novel of romance and deception. Set primarily in Paris and Southern California, this captivating tale includes aging members of the French Resistance, the mysteries surrounding an ancient Corsican game that can turn deadly, and two people―the American writer, Anna, and her unrequited love, the dashing Dr. Charles-Christian Gérard―whose history and exploits drive this novel. Against the backdrop of the tragic death of Princess Diana, we follow one year in the life of Anna as she attempts to piece together the past and understand how love could so quickly die. Between intrigue, murder, and what could be the greatest cover-up in modern history, she learns some painful and very frightening truths. In the process, she discovers her own history. The Seven Turns of the Snail's Shell was awarded Honorable Mention in Fiction at the 2010 Paris Book Festival.
