The Law of Angels by Cassandra Clark
  

Lovereading view...

Summer, 1384. The sun is hot and high - but storm-clouds of insurrection are gathering over England. Hildegard of Meaux - sleuth, spy and now an abbess of the powerful Cistercian order - has found refuge from a world of violence and blood-feud at her new home in Yorkshire. But by taking a bonded maid into the fold, Hildegard has made a dangerous enemy, an enemy who thinks nothing of destroying her little sanctuary to further his own ends. Meanwhile her own history, and her possession of a priceless relic, threatens to drag her into the schemes of traitors to the crown who seek to overthrow King Richard II - including the ruthless Henry Bolingbroke. And with portents in York that the end of days is imminent; signs expressed by death in fire, can even the resourceful Hildegard unweave the tangled skein of conspiracy?

If you like Cassandra Clark you might also like to read books by Ariana Franklin, Shirley McKay and Karen Maitland.
