Enough about Kindle and on to this absolutely amazing book which was perfect in every way. I so did not want it to end and of course it did, but everyone was happy and well at the end. Lucie, Owen and Jasper's characters have such depth and the period details are superb,
" Winter in the year of our Lord 1372. A river pilot falls into the icy waters of the River Ouse during a skirmish between dockworkers and the boys of the minster school, which include Owen Archer’s adopted son Jasper...When another body is fished from the river upstream and Owen discovers that the boy Jasper sought to help has disappeared, Owen Archer convinces the archbishop that he must go in search of the boy. "
In an impeccable and thorough author's note, Candace Robb informs us that a real incident between the scholars and the Abbey bargemen did happen at that time. Nicholas Ferriby and his siblings are historical also and add so much with their foibles to this tale.
Not for one moment is the detail of the era forgotten or do the principals feel too modern. I recommend this to all who love accurate Medieval novels and mysteries. Starting with the first one will work better than starting in the middle.
The story is captivating and puts Owen and Lucie's adopted son in the limelight. It revolves around a school-mate of Jasper's and his family. During the course of the story Owen and Jasper become much closer, in fact, so close that Jasper even calls Owen "da" for the first time, which makes Owen's heart swell with pride and love for his adopted son. Throw in a couple of murders along the way and you have a thoroughly enjoyable story that will hold your interest to the very end. I hated to see this one end but, luckily, I have already downloaded #10 in the series, "A Vigil of Spies" so I won't have to leave Owen Archer and company for a few more days!
Add to that an unusual plot, new characters that it would be a joy to see in some yet-to-be-written books, and the return of Alisoun Ffulford to the story, and you have a read that's hard to put down. The characters and plot echoed in my head when I was not reading.
I am sorry that her books no longer seem to be published in America. You'd think that such a deft writer would find many fans on both sides of the pond.
