Enjoyable but slow (not an action plot)
Ellis writes a period mystery set in the time of Henry the 8th when he had disbanded the religious houses in order to obtain their wealth for his own use. For my part, I knew very little of this so I found the historical facts interesting. The main character is a determined abbess from one of the closed houses who comes to the aid of one of her former novices. The story moves along as she unravels various murders with the help of a former monk. While not rapid paced, it shed light on that period of history that made me glad I had listened to it. Especially since the end notes of the book indicated that the author kept in a lot of history truth. I found the narrator good with adequate character differentiation.
