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.

CHAMBERS OF DEATH: Autumn, 1273: Waylaid by bitter storms and illness, Eleanor accepts lodging at a manor. Eleanor and her companions receive a warm welcome, but they soon realize all is not well. When a groom is found butchered, the sheriff arrests a servant, who is herself murdered before she can either prove her innocence or be led to the gallows. As strangers in this place, Eleanor and Thomas know nothing of motives or past history, yet God's justice demands that they do what they can...

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.


'Paints the 13th century in bold, convincing colors and portrays its people with style, suspense and wit.' Sharon K Penman
