Summary Triptych is a historic novel composed of three narratives receding in time: Belgium in 1914, Spain in 1492, and France in 1356. They trace the journey of a mysterious statue of the Black Madonna, one of many such statues often found in meadows and riverbeds and associated with miracles. No one knows wo sculpted them or why. In Triptych we meet Genevievé Lespinasse, trained by her father to become an accomplished sculptor. Circumstances force her to create a Madonna that must appear clumsily made but which contains an expertly carved secret niche. This Madonna travels through the centuries to play a decisive role in the lives of Sister Juana, a nun and apothhecary who dares to criticize the Spanish Inquisition, and Gabrielle Lespinasse, a Belgian lacemaker who loses her ability to speak as a result of a vicious assault, but whose courage changes the lives of others.
