The illness of Richard, grandson of Baron Adam of Wynethorpe, has brought home the boys aunt, Eleanor, prioress of Tyndal, as well as her companions, Sister Anne, a nun skilled in medicine, and Brother Thomas, a handsome and unwilling monk. Jealousy, lust, fear and treachery lead to murder, perhaps committed by Eleanors brother, Robert, whos found standing with a bloody knife over the freshly slain victim. Its up to Eleanor and her oddly matched companions to prove Roberts innocence before medieval justice delivers its swift and violent verdict. The author carefully renders the hardships of surviving the harsh winters without obscuring the small pleasures that people of the period enjoyed. Eleanor, forceful or diplomatic by turns, is an engaging and resourceful heroine, and Brother Thomas shows surprising depths and strengths. Royal brings her 13th-century world vividly and artfully to life in a series sure to have a bright future.Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
