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.

A KILLING SEASON: Winter, 1274. Baron Herbert 's return from crusade holds no joy. Morose, withdrawn and secretive, the Baron is a shadow of his former self. Something happened in Outremer, and when the his sons begin to die in terrible accidents, some ask whether the Baron harbours a dark sin for which God has cursed him.

Can Eleanor help him before Death's scythe harvests more souls?

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
