Dame Frevisse medieval mysteries
Frazer, Margaret. Dame Frevisse medieval mysteries.
As the nuns of St. Frideswide's priory prepare for the welcome end of Lent, their peaceful expectations are overset by the sudden return of long-vanished Sister Cecely. Nine years ago she fled from the nunnery with a man. Now her lover is dead and she has come back, bringing her illegitimate son with her. Sister Cecely may be penitent--however much Sister Frevisse may doubt it--but fully truthful she is not, and as the apostate nun's lies begin to overtake her, dangers of more than one kind--and maybe murder--become an unwanted part of life in the priory.
