Perhaps not one of the best in this series, but still a convincing foray into the world of a medieval nunnery. Even more important, Ms. Frazier presents a convincing picture of the medieval mind -- too many heroines in other medieval mystery series are simply modern women in long skirts, with attitudes that would have been incomprehensible in their fictional context. Why is this "perhaps not one of the best"? The villain of the piece is worse than necessary (not even one virtue?) which makes her dull, and the subsidiary characters, except for the nuns, are not that clearly differentiated. Still, I'll keep it, and look forward to the next.

Thorough investigation and much intuitive problem solving brought to the reader's mind and eyes how complex Medieval townspeople and the Monastery interact with each other to live in God's love in their hearts and evil in others souls.

This is my favorite Frevisse because it explores her growth in her faith throughout her time as a nun, as well as that of other nuns around her.

Sister Frevisse is always an excellent read.
