THE WHITE LADIES OF WORCESTER....IS A GREAT CHRISTIAN ROMANCE NOVEL SET IN THE 12TH CENTURY! A MUST READ! A TLC BOOKS RECOMMENDED!! 385 PAGES IN PRINT!

• This volume includes a “Detailed Biography” of our author, Florence L. Barclay.

It is the 12th century in the city of Worcester. At the Nunnery of the White Ladies, old lay-sister Mary Antony performs her daily ritual. As the nuns return from Vespers through the underground passage into the cloisters, she counts them in her unique way--dropping one pea for each nun from her hand into a bag. Today the count is different. Today the nuns pass, all the peas drop into the bag, and then one more nun passes by.

Who is this intruder? Could Mary Antony's senses be failing her? Or is it the ghost of Sister Agatha who, years before, was accidentally locked into the underground passageway and suffered an untimely death?

The White Ladies of Worcester is another winner from Florence Barclay, author of The Rosary. As in the Rosary, Barclay pulls you into the action of the novel straight away. The rest of the story revolves around the Prioress of the nunnery who, in her youth, was deserted by her betrothed. The depth of her anguish sends her to the nunnery, and she eventually rises to the top of the ranks. Later events unfold to make the Prioress question the vows she took, while others try to sway her decisions with their own interests in mind.

Barclay invents some wonderful, developed characters here. Our hero, the knight Hugh d'Argent, is strong and burley--a guy you wouldn't want to mess with. But he's easily the most sensitive guy in the novel. Unlike Fanny Burney whose heroes should be slapped for being so whiny, Hugh feels strongly but stoically, which makes one love him all the better.

I loved this story; a romance from early times, with a little religious overtone and an ongoing "two ships passing in the night" plot. It has no explicit passion scenes, which is what keeps me from wanting to read modern novels. I want my books to be like the old movies; you know what's going to happen when they close the bedroom door, but it's not necessary to show it! Try it; you'll like it!
