By Damaskcat HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 July 2008
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Sister Agnes is struggling with her lack of obedience to her Order and she is sent to a convent school in Yorkshire to teach French. Unfortunately there is a particularly unpleaseant murder in the vicinity and Agnes is soon curious about the effect this has on the local community as well as on Father Elias the priest at the school. Runaway and anorexic school girls complicate her life and she must deal with a friend from her own past as well as try to understand the ties which bind the close knit community outside the school. There are issues of faith and obedience to God and more worldly masters as well as the effect lies and misdeeds can have on future lives. An excellent complex mystery with far more depth and also humour than many crime novels.

Disappointing. I am quite sure that the very enlightened order to which Sister Agnes belonged exist, however her freedom of decision making without any reference to her superior brings into question her calling to the religious life. Maybe the role of an oblate would be more in keeping with her detecting skills.

I love a good crime novel but usually guess before halfway through whodunnit. This was not the case with this book as I had no idea until it was revealed in the book. Brilliant writing. Fantastic characters that you really feel you know. Can't wait to read the next book by this author.

Would highly recommend reading this.

If you like your murder mysteries with a bit more depth, this is for you. Sr Agnes is a wonderful character, damaged by her previous life, wracked with doubts about her vocation. Sent away from London to Yorkshire by her order she is like a fish out of water. Once again unable to stop herself becoming involved in the tragic lives of those around her, she investigates a murder that is closely involved with the family who own the local woollen mill. She is also trying to be a teacher at a girl's school and to cope with living in community again. Highly recommended. A cut above the usual.

I really enjoyed it! I cant wait to read book 3. Agnes feels like a real person with real struggles; the plot keeps you in suspense and you get transported into the story.
