Publisher's Summary

When a young nun dies of a fever in the town of Beverley in the summer of 1365, she is buried quickly for fear of the plague. But one year later a woman appears, talking of relic-trading and miracles. She claims to be the dead nun resurrected. Murder follows swiftly in her wake, and the worried Archbishop of York asks Owen Archer to investigate.
Travelling to Leeds and Scarborough to unearth clues, Owen finds only a trail of corpses, until a meeting with Geoffrey Chaucer, spy for King Edward, links the nun with mercenary soldiers and the powerful Percy family. Meanwhile, in York, the apothecary Lucie Wilton has won the mysterious woman's confidence. But the troubled secrets which start to emerge will endanger them all....

Great reader, good story

Would you consider the audio edition of The Nun's Tale to be better than the print version?


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

If you love murder mysteries then this is for you. Candice is one of the 'Medieval Murderers', so if you've tried any of the Brother Cadfael series or similar this is more of the same good stuff. recommended.

Which character – as performed by Stephen Thorne – was your favorite?

Stephen can do so many great voices, he gives each one it's own character.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

we're all as crazy as we seem.

Any additional comments?

I would listen to anything with Stephen Thorne reading - he is so mellow and so telented at giving all the characters their own style. His accents are brilliant, he's such a chameleon.
