Synopsis : Since the death of her husband, Anne Blakhall has carried on their shared business as a tailor and embroiderer in the heart of London. Rather than remarry as prosperous widows usually do, she has taken on a lover - Daved Weir, a foreign merchant who must conceal the fact he is a Jew so long as he is in England, or face deadly peril. Dame Frevisse of St Frideswide's nunnery is in London to arrange funeral vestments for her cousin's murdered husband, the Duke of Suffolk. She is also charged with secretly recovering gold the duke sent out of England shortly before his death. Attempting to help her cousin, she encounters Anne and Daved. But her duty and their love become more dangerous as a rebel army approaches the city. Trapped by rebels, threatened by the Inquisition, Dame Frevisse must find out not only who is guilty, but whether anyone at all is innocent.
'15th-century London is vividly brought to life in this book. The
characters are fully three-dimensional, and the identity of the killer is a
well-guarded secret until the final chapters.'
