MEDIEVAL MYSTERY: On a remote East Anglian coast stands Tyndal Priory, home to a rare monastic order where men and women live and work together in close proximity. Twenty-year-old Eleanor of Wynethorpe has been appointed prioress by Henry III over the elected choice of the priory itself. Young and inexperienced, Eleanor will face a grave struggle – in a place dedicated to love and peace, she will find little of either.
FORSAKEN SOUL: The summer of 1273 is peaceful for most of England – except in the village of Tyndal where Martin the cooper has been poisoned at the local inn. The list of suspects is long – there were plenty with good cause to wish the brutal cooper dead – but God's justice must be rendered – even for the forsaken soul.
