It is late summer in the year 1270 and England is as weary as its aging king, Henry III. Although the Simon de Montfort rebellion is over, the smell of death still hangs like smoke over the land. Even in the small priory of Tyndal on the remote East Anglian coast, the monks and nuns of the Order of Fontevraud long for a return to tranquil routine. Their hopes are dashed, however, when the young and inexperienced Eleanor of Wynethorpe is appointed their new prioress over someone of their own choosing.

Fine start

I really enjoyed the beginning- it's made me wish for the next installment. So many clues to the future- she wrongly accused- who? why? Also, the idea of changing the Priory's "administration" will surely set up some interesting tension, and we'll learn about new characters with the rest of the Priory. A great start!

Can't Wait

I can't wait for the next installment. This has great potential. I'm not familiar with this period in history either, so I may actually learn something also.

I too find this to be a good start. I'm already full of questions and anxious to read more.

Interesting

I like the premise of this book...I was intrigued by the Brother Cadfael series in books and then on TV. The author gives us enough information to keep us in the time frame without trying to mimic the vernacular of the time..with these and thou. I think that I'll find the book and continue.

Finally read it

I've finally read this book. I liked it (mainly because of the character, Eleanor) but was a little taken aback by all the homosexuality in it. Is this what this series is all about? Did anybody else read this?
