i enjoyed reading another owen archer mystery. candace robb writes in detail about england and its people. i have enjoyed each book i have read with the character of owen archer. any fan of archer and robb will enjoy this book too.
spring 1366, beverly england-a ghostly pale young women claims to be the resurrected joanna calverly, a nun who died of a fever some months before. it would be a matter for the church alone, were it not for the murders that seen to follow in her wake.
owen archer finds the case a frustrating one. dame joanna is by turns cagey and hysterical, while always clutching her secrets tightly. worse yet, the nun's keepers ask owen's pregnat wife, lucie, to use her healing skills on joanna's behalf, placing the archer family in gravest danger.

I really enjoy this series and this entry is very good, although the plot is quite complex. Robb handles it nicely, though. The main attraction to me remains the characterizations and excellent sense of time and place.

This 14th century mystery series set in York is, in my humble opinion, ranked only behind the pinnacle of Medieval mysteries, Ellis Peters' Cadfael series. This one takes place in 1365-1366.
