About this product
- DescriptionWhen two of the nuns creating the Bayeux Tapestry fall from the tower of the Priory of St Thomas the Apostle, Abbess Elear and her protege, Therese, are sent to investigate. As the adventures unfold, the intrigue created between the Norman Princes and Bishops, as well as the tensions between the conquerors and the native Britons, deepen to great and dramatic effect. Mary Bale has captured the spirit and feel of the times which she evokes in this, her first vel. The sense of intrigue is heightened by the writing style which is taut, fast-paced, and heavy with a sense of mystery. This extensively researched vel is sure to appeal to those looking for an evocative tale of adventure and intrigue, made vivid by fascinating period details.
