An outbreak of the Black Death, the collapse of the convent spire, the Bishop's visitation and a nun's disappearance are interwoven with the everyday life of the nuns, novices, successive Prioresses and the nun's priest, in this affectionate and ironic observation of the more worldly history of a religious order.

Review:

Spellbinding (SUNDAY TIMES)

The charm, the wit, the speculation make the book very remarkable (TLS)

No one after Hardy has inwoven more closely the sheer feel of material things, of weather, of light across water or foliage... (George Steiner, TLS)

More people should know how GOOD she is ... a marvellous nose for character (Spectator)

Book Description:

During the 14th century, in Norfolk, the inhabitants of a Benedictine convent go about daily business. Here are the dramas - Black Death, the fall of the convent spire, the Bishop's visitation, a nun's disappearance - together with everyday squabbles, ambitions, jealousies and pleasures.
