Synopsis of book»

A Hildegard of Meaux novel. A riveting medieval mystery.

Summer, 1384.  The sun is hot and high, promising a fine harvest - but storm-clouds of insurrection are gathering over England. Lollard heretics, driven from their base at Oxford by the iron fist of the Archbishop Courtenay, now roam the land sowing sedition. A return to the bloodshed that swept over the country during the Great Rebellion seems certain. And in the capital, the boy king Richard II is now seventeen; his uncle John of Gaunt still refuses to step aside for his ward.

Hildegard of Meaux – sleuth, spy and now an abbess of the powerful Cistercian order – has found refuge from a world of violence, schism and blood-feud at her new minor house in Lancashire. But by taking a bonded maid into the fold Hildegard has made a dangerous enemy, an enemy who thinks nothing of destroying her little sanctuary to further his own ends. Meanwhile her own history, and her possession of a priceless relic, threatens to drag her into the schemes of traitors to the crown who seek to overthrow King Richard’s regime - including the ruthless Henry Bolingbroke.

And as if this wasn’t enough, there are portents in York that the End of days is imminent; signs expressed by death in fire. Under the shadow of the apocalypse, can even the resourceful Hildegard unweave the tangled skein of conspiracy?

The Law Of Angels vividly recreates the conflicting worlds of Medieval England – a place where loyalty and Christian love meet treason, absolute faith and murderous superstition.
