Aug 23, Alison rated it liked it Shelves: This story is well-written and interesting. Unfortunately, it was far more powerful in its original context of part of a series of short crime fiction based on Shankespearean characters. Without that, it is slightly more random than it deserves to be.

But he returns claiming he was kidnapped, and though doubtful, Frevisse gives him a second chance. Then a murder occurs. I just wish the visit had been longer to prolong the pleasure her books always give me. This beloved heroine is once again confronted with murders, poisonings, and other crimes near St. If Frevisse fails to find the guilty person, an innocent man may be condemned.
Fortunately, in becoming the head of the priory, the nun has lost none of her detective instincts, and Frazer leads us skillfully to a satisfying conclusion of the plot. In this novelette we find Domina Frevisse balancing the responsibilities of Prioress with her talent for solving crime. A young man in the village is missing after being accused of rape. Things about his disappearance do not add up, and cause Domina Frevisse to delve into the mystery.
As usual the plot is well thought out and well executed. You also always learn about history in Ms. I love the interaction of Domina Frevisse with the characters we know and love from her pre-Prioress days. I wish the book was longer so that I could have enjoyed it for a longer time!
I remember, in my early days in St. The day was February at its most bleak: Traffic roared past, and all the buses were full or, when one paused with at least standing room left, I failed to scale the dirty snowbank faster than others eager to crowd into the fusty heat beyond the hissing doors. The technical difficulties we were having a couple days ago seem to have been largely resolved.
Take my hand for a little double-layered time travel, as we go Falling Into Medieval England.

We have apparently run into some scheduling problems with the blog tour today. Sharon Kay Penman, my dear friend and an extraordinarily talented writer, has written a very fine article on the difficulties and rewards of staying as true as may be to medieval mind-sets in our novels and not cheating by giving our characters modern sensibilities they could never have had.
You might also be interested in an interview Sharon did with me back in December as a very special Christmas gift.
Hopefully that can tide you over until this blog tour thing can get itself straightened out! Priscilla Royal, most recently author of the medieval mystery Valley of Dry Bones , was kind enough to interview me for the LadyKillers. Venturing far beyond Winter Heart , we chatted about Joliffe and my other short stories and all manner of things. Come join us for Crafting the Historical Mystery: An Interview with Margaret Frazer.
Winter Heart, of course, is a bit further afield, but she has nonetheless been kind enough to host me today with a brief discussion of where this particular story came from. Nook News — Every Short Story!
