Melvyn Bragg is best known for The South Bank Show and In Our Time on BBC Radio 4. He is also an accomplished novelist and his works have twice been longlisted for the Man Booker Prize. In Love Without End, Bragg brings the 12th-century into the 21st as he breathes fresh life into one of history’s most remarkable and enduring love stories. Heloise arrives in Paris bent on entering its masculine world of learning. The brilliant, radical philosopher, Peter Abelard, consents to be her tutor but what starts out as a meeting of minds turns into a passionate, dangerous love affair which sends shockwaves throughout the country and incurs terrible retribution.
“Bragg brilliantly re-imagines the legendary love story of Heloise and Abelard, uniting the middle ages and today in this thrilling novel.” – Antonia Fraser
