5.0 out of 5 stars Vow of Silence, 1 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vow of Silence (Kindle Edition)
This is an entertaining and well written cozy mystery, set in a convent. Sister Joan took her vocation relatively late and is an obedient, but questioning, member of the community. When the Reverend Mother tells her there is a vacancy in the Order of the Daughters of Compassion House in Cornwall, she asks her to go there and admits that she is uneasy about a letter she had from Mother Frances, her previous Novice Mistress. Mother Frances was very elderly and has since died, but her letter suggested that all is not well.

Sister Joan travels to Cornwall with a new novice, Veronica. The Reverend Mother at the Cornwall House is the daughter of a brilliant archeologist and a great champion of his work. Almost immediately, Sister Joan feels something is wrong and when another nun admits her disquiet about a feeling of "evil", she is unable to stop herself investigating. Sister Joan is a good heroine, the characters are well written and the way of life in the convent is sympathetically portrayed. Overall, an excellent first book in a series I look forward to reading more of.
