Publisher's Summary

When the novice Emma Thorgold goes missing from Godstow Abbey in the summer of 1353, the hunt is on throughout the Oxfordshire countryside. Bookseller Nicholas Elyot and scholar Jordain Brinkylsworth are anxious to help the girl, but her stepfather has other intentions. Why is he so determined to shut her away for life? Or worse? And will she be found unharmed?

Absorbing plot set in a brilliantly explained Medieval time.

I enjoy Anne Swinfen’s style evoking Medieval speech. I am getting used to Philip Battley’s restrained reading performance in this second book of the series. NH
