A modern mystery woven with ancient threads,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Very Private Grave (The Monastery Murders) (Paperback)
The long-dead St. Cuthburt, whom I didn't know had existed, is the non-present center for this entriguing tale. Donna Fletcher Crow wove the ancient legends and history into a modern treasure hunt in a way that kept drawing me in. Along the way I discovered when I was expecting one thing, another surprise was there. An additional delight is realizing that this is not a figment of her imagination only, but is based on solid research concerning a real person. And, her descriptions of the places visited are written as by one who has been there and seen that. The skillful weaving of past and present demonstrates that our present cannot be severed from our past without being greatly impoverished. I look forward to the next Monastery Murder.
