Review from Muriel Richards

As his character develops, Baudet finds an artistic talent and when this is merged to the inexplicable lure of the nearby abbey, he gives up his romantic relationship to respond to the call of monastic life.

The tale of how he overcomes tribulations to rise from a simple scribe to the highest position within those walls is gripping and informative because the author has done his historical research.

Baudet’s greatest achievement comes at the end of the book, but no spoilers here. If you like medieval French history, you will love this excellent novel. I can happily give it a 5-star rating.
