Jubilate is a love story unlike any other.
A woman wakes in a Lourdes hotel room beside her lover of just two days. She has brought her brain-damaged husband on a pilgrimage to seek a miracle cure; her lover is making a TV documentary to mark the 150th anniversary year of the shrine. Setting aside personal doubts, family ties and spiritual differences, they embark on a turbulent affair from which neither they nor those around them will emerge unchanged.
Jubilate is a love story unlike any other. This passionate and provocative new novel from Michael Arditti combines tender romance with a unique and richly observed setting. Packed with eccentric and engaging characters, it challenges accepted notions of sickness and health, duty and sacrifice, the nature of miracles and the workings of grace.
