MEDIEVAL MYSTERY: On a remote East Anglian coast stands Tyndal Priory, home to a rare monastic order where men and women live and work together in close proximity. Twenty-year-old Eleanor of Wynethorpe has been appointed prioress by Henry III over the elected choice of the priory itself. Young and inexperienced, Eleanor will face a grave struggle – in a place dedicated to love and peace, she will find little of either.

SORROW WITHOUT END: As the first of winter's storms ravages the East Anglian coast, a man, his soul burning with vengeance, takes the last steps in a journey that began two thousand miles ago...

In the woods surrounding Tyndal Priory, the discovery of a disembowelled corpse wrapped in a crusader's cloak horrifies the community. A bronze dagger planted in the man's chest is engraved with a strange, cursive design. It is no Englishman's weapon. Could it be a Saracen blade? Wielded by an assassin?

Priscilla Royal was born in Seattle, grew up in British Columbia and now lives in Northern California. She has a degree in world literature from San Francisco State University and is the author of nine books in the Medieval Mysteries series.

MEDIEVAL MYSTERIES. On a remote East Anglian coast stands Tyndal Priory, which belongs to the Order of Fontevraud, a rare 'double house' where monks and nuns live and work in close proximity. Outside its cloisters, England smoulders in the waning years of Henry III's (1207-1272) reign. Simon de Montfort's rebellion has been put down but a pall of unrest still hangs over the land like smoke. The Wynethorpe family sided with the king during the rebellion and as a reward for their loyal service, twenty-year-old Eleanor of Wynethorpe has been appointed prioress of Tyndal Priory. Eleanor's arrival is resented by the nuns and monks – they had already elected their own candidate for the position. Young and inexperienced, Eleanor will face a grave struggle – in a place dedicated to love and peace, she will find little of either.


'Intriguing plot, chilling conclusion and all the potential to evolve into a series as enduring as Ellis Peters' Publishers Weekly

'Anyone who hasn't read Priscilla Royal's mysteries yet is in for a treat' Sharon Kay Penman

'A superior historical' Publishers Weekly
