The Sins of Castel Du Mont

Author: Rosemary Bracco Greenbaum Kohler


The Sins of Castel du Mont

Dirty Little Secrets…

If centuries of sex, sin, violence, romance and heresy echoed within the walls of your childhood home, would you dare spill the secrets now solely in your possession?

Based on authentic Italian folklore, The Sins of Castel du Mont unfolds in the actual castle where its author and this epic tale were born.

In 1964, feeling the lure of the castle and the legends surrounding it, author Rosemary Bracco Greenbaum Kohler was drawn to her birthplace (where she was the first legitimate child) to unravel the mysteries of The Castel du Mont. Conducting intensive interviews with only local citizens over eighty years old, the author collected the four epic tales artfully woven together into this monumental novel. The haunting stories surrounding The Castel were given to her in the dying dialect of Piedmontese.

For centuries, The Castel has kept its secrets and for over five decades, these unorthodox accounts based on folklore that was whispered from generation to generation simmered in translation until the time was ripe for the sins to be revealed…
