In 'The Lady of the Cup', Patrice Chaplin tells the true story of the Englishwoman entrusted with the legacy of Rennes-le-Chateau. Rich with photographs, letters and historical documents, it fills in key gaps in one of the most compelling mysteries of all time.

Patrice Chaplin began going to Girona, Spain, at age 15, and with each visit she became more enmeshed in its mysteries. She found a lover, Jose; met many strange characters; and heard dark talk of the legendary Abbé Saunière of Rennes-le-Château. She discovered that many of Girona's townspeople were part of a secret society formed to guard the Abbé's legacy and his knowled Patrice Chaplin began going to Girona, Spain, at age 15, and with each visit she became more enmeshed in its mysteries

Today, Chaplin finds herself thrown deep into the Grail culture, and at the heart of a raging new controversy about the reality of the Rennes-le-Château mystery. Chaplin is the director of The Bridge®, a non-profit organization that leads workshops based in the performing arts as a new and unique way to help fight addiction. She resides in London and is currently writing The Garden of the Frenchwoman.

City of Secrets is the extraordinary true story of one woman's journey to the heart of the Grail legend. In her book City of Secrets, Patrice traces her journey through the foothills of the Pyrenees, the land where the wanderings of the Grail and its Troubadours of the heart have left their indelible imprint. Patrice writes in City of Secrets about the chemistry of interaction between grail adepts and the energies in specific locations. Calling up of the Cup could only happen in certain sites depending on the power of the ley lines and the pulse of energies in that precise site. He wrote a book called Foucault's Pendulum and he got a lot of information from Luiz at the Girona bookstore. Umberto certainly witnessed a ritual, even though he will always deny he did.

Thus began Patrice Chaplin’s extraordinary journey into the lives of these doomed lovers: a journey that was finally to unlock the secrets of their past. During the years of the First World War, somewhere on the terraces of the cafés of Montparnasse, Jeanne Hebuterne met the Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani. Patrice Chaplin, author of 36 books and plays, including The Siesta and City of Secrets, introduces this unique supernatural thriller – based on a true story. The Fortune Seller takes us into the unexplored world of the psychic industry, a booming business fuelled by thousands desperately seeking love, success, revenge, and glimpses into the future.

By the time the doctors arrive, she has died from "heart disease," purportedly from "the joy that kills. Chopin tackles complex issues involved in the interplay of female independence, love, and marriage through her brief but effective characterization of the supposedly widowed Louise Mallard in her last hour of life. After discovering that her husband has died in a train accident, Mrs. Mallard faces conflicting emotions of grief at her husband's death and exultation at the prospects for freedom in the remainder of her life

The narrator of The Story of an Hour by Kate Chopin relates what she observes in simple prose, but when her emotions are described, the words are vibrant and powerful. The world outside of her own bedroom is only minimally described, but the world inside of her mind is lively and well described by the narrator. In many ways, the fact that she dies at the end of simple heart disease" (which the doctors think cam about as a result of her joy of seeing her husband) is symbolic of the disease" of marriage. Much like an affliction, she cannot feel free unless the agent, her husband, is no longer present.

Whether the story happened the way Smith tells it-or even at all-is up for debate as the new Smithsonian Channel documentary explains. Smithsonian Channel). Pocahontas might be a household name, but the true story of her short but powerful life has been buried in myths that have persisted since the 17th century. So the lesson passed down by mainstream culture is that by leaving her people and adopting Christianity, Pocahontas became a model of how to bridge cultures. What do you think are the real lessons to be learned from Pocahontas’ actual life? Largely, the lesson is one of extraordinary strength even against very daunting odds. Pocahontas' people could not possibly have defeated or even held off the power of Renaissance Europe, which is what John Smith and the colonizers who came later represented.

A poor priest in a rundown parish in the South of France woke up one morning wealthy beyond measure. It was 1891, the parish Rennes le Chateau and Abbe Berenguer Sauniere has mystified the world ever since. In the fifties, a fifteen-year-old girl escapes from her dull, English life to the sun-drenched cobbles of provincial Europe. When she falls in love with an ancient but otherwise unremarkable bourgeois town she falls, too, for its favourite son. Both relationships will last a lifetime. Over the years, the woman returns again and again to the town, and her lover. She meets strange and wonderful people - including Jean Cocteau and Umberto Eco - and hears tales of visions, a phenomenally wealthy priest, a fabulous garden and a beautiful Frenchwoman.The priest is Abbe Sauniere, of Rennes-le-Chateau. Solving the mysteries surrounding his discoveries and sudden wealth have formed the basis of the modern Grail phenomenon - from blockbuster novels and movies to historical analysis and high-profile court cases. Cast as the detective in her own story, and in a series of dramatic twists and turns, the woman finds herself at the heart of a world she barely knew existed. People she has known for over fifty years, members of a secret society set up to protect Abbe Sauniere's legacy, are asking her to act as their messenger. She must take some of their most important secrets, and make them known. This is her story, and their secrets revealed. Rich with photographs, letters and historical documents, it fills in key gaps in one of the most compelling mysteries of all time. It is also a page-turning, true-life adventure set in a beautiful and ancient city, where nothing is as it first appears.

I heard an interview given by the author on Coast to Coast AM with Ian Punnett and was hooked on getting the book. What a marvelous story this is. It truly is one that kept me up reading late several nights. The story may seem like just another love story at first, but the events and details will leave you with one of those "Wow" moments by the end of the book. I was interested in the story because it told the other half of a story that did not make great sense when I first began my research into Renne la Chateau France and Father Sonnier. Now, everything makes sense and the mystery is solved in my mind. What is so fascinating is that Patrice Chaplin was in the middle of one of the greatest secrets kept from this world and she finally was made a part of the adventure. Wow! Get it and read it and you will want more from this marvelous writer. The only sad thing is, there will be no more of this story unless...Jose comes back yet again! You will know what I mean once you have read this great book.

Chaplin's new research and journey takes place in and around the mysterious Spanish town of Girona, that has a legend of a Tower of Magdala, that Sauniere duplicated at Rennes le Chateau and secret Kabbalist writings,that were sold to Templars of Salzburg leading to the Habsburgs of Austria, the SION and a secret stone in a fish pond.
There are also letters printed in this book to confirm the findings

Important findings and Revelations to all researchers of the Truth

An absolutely fascinating book. A look into the life of Patrice Chaplin beginning as a teenager traveling Europe with no real destination in mind until she came to Girona, Spain and knew this was where needed to be. Her life, her love and her experiences I envy very much. This book also explains the other half of the Rennes LeChateau mystery and Berenger Saunier. My, my Patrice, what a life you were able to live and I'm looking forward to your next book.

Very interesting, read with an open mind.
Simple
Necessary to read in sequence, this first, next The Portal, then The Stone Cradle.
I'd heard about the writer and her history and some of the books but I was disappointed by what I found in this particular book.
I suppose if you buy into all the Rennes-le-Chateau/Holy Blood Holy Grail/etc conspiracies/mysteries/folklore the reader would find something of interest or amusement but I found myself more irritated than entertained, more frustrated than informed and above all, very glad I had bought it from Amazon as a used book so I hadn't wasted more money on it.
Caveat emptor.
