The Servant’s Tale

by Margaret Frazer

This is the second in a series of seven books about Sister Frevisse, a feisty 15th century nun who inhabits the convent of St. Frideswide. Like Brother Cadfael in Ellis Peters’ novels, Sister Frevisse not only solves crimes of the body but those of the troubled heart as well. In this story, period details bring the multifaceted world of the 15th century convent to life when the sisters are presented with a troupe of actors who arrive with the wounded husband of the convent’s maid. Other Sister Frevisse novels bring the nun into the larger world of the politically connected well-to-do.
