In one room all the women sat around a fire-that was sinister in itself for in normal times slaves and mistresses should have been rushing to get their chores done before the short winter daylight ended. The fire had been neglected.

Julia O'Faolain (born 6 June 1932 in London) . Women in the Wall" (1975) is a history of Saint Radegund, who in the sixth century founded a monastery in Gaul.

Julia O'Faolain (born 6 June 1932 in London) is an Irish novelist and short story writer. Her parents were Irish writers Seán Ó Faoláin and Eileen Gould. Although it's her first book in 17 years, it explores familiar themes: clerical intrigue, family history and farce, with madness added to the mix. 'I like fiction to be a Trojan horse, she says.

Women in the Wall book. She is also canonized in the Catholic Church. O'Faolain takes these historical figures, and the poet Fortunatus, and weaves her own story, one that is grounded in the worldly, and very earthy, affairs of this early Medieval period. Many readers may take offense at the author's emphasis on the mundane and the mundane motivations that drive the characters in her book. Radegunda's flight from her husband is caused, not so much by his killing her brother, but by her revulsion of him in bed.

I'm not the type of person who normally leaves one-star reviews. If I don't like something, I usually just ignore it. But sometimes I can't walk away from a truly atrocious book without trying to warn others from wasting both their time and money on a novel that should be flushed down the toilet. This is one of those cases. If you enjoy filth, smut, and strange (at times seriously weird) writing styles, not to mention totally warped history, then by all means, spend a couple cents and order the cheapest used copy you can. The price of the postage won't be worth it. Yes, "Women in the Wall" REALLY is that bad. If you ask me, the whole novel was nothing but an excuse for a sex-fest. I thought I was buying a story of a saint. Instead I found myself reading something Rated X.

I purchased this novel because the main character is Saint Radegunda, and as a Catholic, I wanted to find out about her life. The true Saint Radegunda was one of the most selfless, loving, kind, and noble women to have graced 6th century Gaul. As the wife of King Clodair, one of Clovis's sons and a cruel, heartless man, Radegunda had incredible trials to suffer at his hands. But as a Christian, she used the sorrows and disappointments of her life to rise to great union with God. She is a giant of a saint. Yet this appalling novel portrays her as a duped woman bordering on insanity, and the author seems to use every opportunity to ridicule the Catholic faith. The scenes depicting convent life are totally ridiculous and inaccurate. I know this, because I spent several years living a cloistered convent, and the way religious life is shown here is so far off the mark it's laughable.

My copy was only one cent, thank goodness. It's going straight into the trash can.

This fascinating book focussed on unusual and sometimes disturbing themes. Set following the turn of the previous millenium, the book is set around the life of Radegunda, the anchorite of the title, and the convent she is walled up in. I hugely enjoyed the book, though found the details of anchorite life a little too detailed!
