His spirited daughter Cosette is now eighteen and living a seemingly idyllic life. Married to the wild and carefree Marius she is happy tending to her new house and spending time in her rose garden. However, her new-found happiness is threatened by her husbands close association with the cold and heartless dandy, the marquis de Amdee.

Under his influence Marius becomes immersed in the seedy underbelly of Parisian life, edging him ever closer to danger. During the Mardi Gras festivities Marius unwittingly falls into a trap and is sent to a penal colony, like Jean Valjean before him.

Thinking him dead, Cosette despairs until the oddly familiar priest, Verjat, begins to discover the reality behind the illusion. On a quest for redemption, Verjat uses all the skills from his previous life, as Inspector Javert, to help the distraught Cosette and the imprisoned Marius. From the salons to the brothels, from the cafs to the stench of prison, the characters criss-cross, brush past each other, encounter each other anew, against a backdrop of the events of 1833 to 1836.

An instant bestseller in France, Cosette is a feast for fans of the both the novel and the stage show.
