The Nun’s Tale
by Candace Robb
God’s will or the Devil’s work? Owen Archer investigates a young runaway nun who claims to have been resurrected, setting a series of dark discoveries and violent deaths in motion.
York, 1365. Dame Joanna Calverley of Leeds fled St. Clement’s Priory with its precious relic – the milk of the Virgin – and died of fever soon after in Beverley.
A MIRACLE RESURRECTION?
Joanna is dead and buried . . . isn’t she? Not according to housemaid Maddy, who finds Joanna in her master’s house almost a year after her burial. Joanna claims to have risen from the dead and is seeking to return to the convent with the relic. Why did she disappear? Where is Will Longford, the master of the house? And how is the trail of death and destruction that follows linked to her supposed resurrection?
THE TRUTH WON’T STAY BURIED FOR EVER . . .
As Owen attempts to make sense of Joanna’s troubled riddles, he unravels a dark family secret and the shocking truth behind the nun’s tale.
