Constant Sister: a Sister Katherine medieval mystery
by Gillian Bridge
London 1189: King Richard’s coronation, a deadly fire and a wave of anti-Jewish violence set the scene for a mysterious death. Sister Katherine, a sister at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, faces two critical tasks: to nurse the wounded and ranting Sir Ralph back to health and to unearth what really happened. And she must do both before the sheriff and his men take her patient to Newgate Gaol to be hanged.
Story and history, miracles and medicine entwine in this riveting mystery that transports the reader into a feudal world dominated by religion and hierarchy.
