Sintesi dell'editore

When one of her company falls ill on a return journey to Tyndal, Prioress Eleanor accepts lodging at a nearby manor. There, Master Stevyns's wife is having an affair with the groom, while a local widow acts more like the lady of the manor than the lady herself. The master's eldest son and spouse are obsessed with sin and heaven, while his youngest son, bound for the church, unexpectedly returns with more interest in lute playing than the priesthood.

It is no surprise when someone's throat is cut, but the sheriff does all he can to avoid offending the family rather than seeking the real killer. When he arrests a servant, she herself is stabbed before she can either prove her innocence or be taken away for hanging. Eleanor must discover the dark secrets that have led to this string of killings before the murderer strikes again.

"Absorbing....Once again, Royal combines a well-executed plot with authentic period detail." ( Publishers Weekly)

Much better narrator

This series of books is quite good. This one has interesting characters and a good plot. This narrator is much better than one on the previous novels.

I love the history...

I love that the first book had a lot of history info & that at the end of each book there are "writer's notes" that further explain how she used the history research to create the story just read.

Another complex tale

I enjoy this series, , there is a good deal of social history and the daily lives of the characters seem well drawn and accurate. The various threads of the tale interweave into a complex picture and are brought to a satisfying conclusion. The doubts and uncertainties of the main characters and the very different ideas about religion and religiosity add to the story. Why no one realized the murderer was insane earlier in the story remains a mystery. His fate points out the different view of life world nowadays.
I don’t care for this narrator. The mealy mouthed accent she gives Eleanor ( known for her forthrightness ) made me cringe. There are other ways of conveying nobility!

Engaging

I have been enjoying this series. I like the main characters and the plots are very engaging. Although the politics of the day are not but hinted at in the story itself, I like that the author explains it after the story has concluded.

Absolutely awesome!!

This exceeded all expectation. An exceptional murder mystery in a historical setting. Prioress and monk are taking shelter in a household when a murder is committed, thanks to the obsequious sheriff the assailant is taken in, or maybe perhaps not...

10/10
