Summary (From the publisher):

Portugal, 1711: an amorous friar is pursued naked through the rubble-strewn streets of Portugal; an enthusiastic procession of flagellants roars with pleasure over the damnation of adultery; a royal prince uses hapless sailors for target practice. In the midst of the terrors of the Inquision and the plague, a seemingly mismatched couple discovers the wonders of love.
