"The Maid's Request tells the story of an enigmatic relationship between a sixteenth-century Italian painter and his servant." "At the behest of the French king an artist has journeyed from Italy to lead his school of students in the design and construction of a chateau in the Loire valley. Despite the fact that master and servant seldom talk, each is acutely aware of the other's presence and routine. He gives her gifts of clothing and jewellery; she is sensitive to his every need. He imagines them dying together, envisaging her as lover, angel, Madonna. Finally, falteringly, one sleepless winter's night in the kitchen she makes her request."--BOOK JACKET

"In her cottage in the rain-drenched French countryside, an old woman receives an unexpected visitor: a boy whispering in an unfamiliar language, and bringing sheaves of paper, the letters and jottings of her youngest son. Some time before - and not even the locals who relate the story can remember how long - her son had done as she had told him, and left to seek his fortune on a Caribbean island. Once there, the promised wealth disastrously eluded him, and soon, not far from the old woman's cottage, a mysterious stranger was seen, with a boy and a dog, carrying planks into the woods to build a place to live, perhaps a place to die."--BOOK JACKET
