Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live...

Witchcraft has come to the peaceful village near St. Frideswide, and its foul touch is striking down those closest to the church. Can Dame Frevisse thwart the servants of the devil before the hellfire of hysteria sears the souls of the faithful? Or is there more to this magic than meets the eye? The truth can only be found in the Witch's Tale.

(The Witch's Tale is part of the Margaret Frazer's Tales series of short stories.)

PRAISE FOR THE SISTER FREVISSE MEDIEVAL MYSTERY SERIES

“Frazer is writing one of the most consistently excellent historical series in print today.” – Murder Ink

"Frazer successfully captures the essence of 15th century England – the sights, smells, and sounds fill the pages, drawing us in as we become immersed in the language, manners, and customs of a far off time and place.” – Rendezvous

“Dame Frevisse, the pious and perspective nun gives focus to this sober series... [Frazer] shows a meticulous detail that speaks of trustworthy scholarship and a sympathetic imagination.” – New York Times Book Review

"Once you begin to read this series, you will want to follow your new friends to the end of their personal story.” – Cross Point Book Reviews

"Exquisitely written... A superbly researched medieval mystery series!” – Publisher’s Weekly

“Everything about it bespeaks quality and care… Frazer draws us into a medieval village in England with a story of lust, greed, and murder.” – St. Paul Pioneer Press

A Romantic Times Top Pick.

Meet the Author

Margaret Frazer is the award-winning author of more than twenty historical murder mysteries and novels. She makes her home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, surrounded by her books, but she lives her life in the 1400s. In writing her Edgar-nominated Sister Frevisse (<em>The Novice's Tale</em>) and Player Joliffe (<em>A Play of Isaac</em>) novels she delves far inside medieval perceptions, seeking to look at medieval England more from its point of view than ours. "Because the pleasure of going thoroughly into otherwhen as well as otherwhere is one of the great pleasures in reading."

Not as good as Frazer's novels. I missed the humor or Sister Fevrisse, and the details which made me feel I was in the Middle Ages.

This is a good story but very short.

After the Joliffe mysteries, I thought this would be similar. It ends abruptly and is unsatisfying.
