The Eight by Katherine Neville. Twenty years ago, Neville created a masterful romantic adventure story which combines two interesting themes-chess and the French Revolution! Her heroines, the spirited young nun, Mireille, and Catherine Velis, a modern day working woman and computer whiz, travel from one exotic local to another in search of a legendary set of chess pieces, the Montglane Service. Both women find themselves in Algeria, a land we don't often hear about in the news or in fiction, making their way from the coast of the Mediterranean to the great Sahara and the Atlas Mountains. Also available after a long wait is a sequel to this popular novel, called The Fire. Both books are available at your library.
