Book Description

When in 1497 murder, flood and disease hit the holy city of Gloucester it’s not long before the monks of Blackfriars and the corrupt burghers of the city start to talk of sorcery. Orphaned at a young age and trapped in marriage to the boorish Humphrey, Emmelina finds herself the focus of fear and superstition. Punishments are brutal; fires will be lit; people will burn. But what really happened to her friend and maidservant, Fayette, and how much is she prepared to risk in the name of freedom… and of love?


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Plenty of local detail and period atmosphere; Jordan knows Gloucester well and takes the reader on a fascinating tour of the mediaeval city. It is an intriguing story with a feisty protagonist, murders and violence, tears and joy and more than a little excitement. An entertaining debut novel."
Historical Novel Society November 2014 Issue


"A dark romance, full of sensual passion. Fantastic."
Cotswold Life October 2014 Issue


"Christine has succeeded in putting together a page turner of a tale of love, greed, intrigue and corruption that not only entertains the reader but also gives a fascinating insight into Gloucester life five centuries ago."
The Gloucester Review June 2014
