The Abbey

(Pocket)
Beskrivning:

The sound of drawn swords and mailed feet shatter the peace of the Abbey. While Maud cowers in the roof space, the Battle of Tewkesbury resounds all around her. Maud only wanted her lover, Thomas, to rescue her from an arranged marriage, but murder is on his mind. Set in 1471 this tale of lust and sin between a virgin bride and an adulterous nobleman plays out amid the Wars of the Roses. Meanwhile, in 1983 Louise, conservation volunteer, cheerfully takes the place of an injured student cleaning the Faith Chapel within the Abbey. She also is swayed by passion into an affair with the married professor who oversees the project to preserve the Abbey. But who can she hear whispering her desperate prayers through the Abbey wall? Drawn into Maud's tempestuous world she finds her own life playing out alongside Maud's and her own desires lead her to lose her own path. Once again Lizzy Lloyd cleverly intertwines the lives of two young women of the present and past who share the same dilemma. Which will be happy and which will despair? "Author of The Whyte Hinde awarded Purple Star of Excellence in the Pacific Review."
