Publisher's Summary

"Shed here no tears. No Saint could die
More Blessed and Comforted than I."
So read the epitaph composed by Morwenna Treverra centuries ago as she followed her beloved husband, Jan, into death. The couple have been together ever since, models of pious content, in the little seaside Saxon church near the village of Maymouth. But when curious scholars arrange to open Jan Treverra's tomb, it yields not one body but two...and neither one of them is Jan Treverra.
Detective Inspector George Felse happens to be on holiday nearby; indeed, he helped to open the crypt and reveal its all too modern contents. Now, from an ancient grave, a mystery unfolds; a trail ov violence in Maymouth's history that casts shadows centuries long.

The mystery is clever and the story is wonderful. In it one of the character does a mean thing aimed at breaking another's spirit. The author redeems that miserable action with love. And that becomes a recurring theme - Redemptive parental, martial, friendship and romantic love. Someone more clever than I could turn make this a good Lenten study.
