The Notorious Abbess Rules!
23 April 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
The abbess of the Convent of Sts Evodias and Syntyche is one of the late Vera Chapman's most fascinating characters. Born to privilege but limited by her sex, she first went to the Holy Land with Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine and travels back and forth several times within these lively short stories; there seems to be little she can't do except control her curiosity! She knows both pagan and Christian magic and uses them to her advantage. The stories are brisk and full of lovingly ornate historical detail. I only wish there could be more.

This is a book full of the interesting events the Abess Hodierna goes through. Her events include magical conjurings and taking care of fantastical animals to encounters with the Devil himself. "Providing a refreshing change from today's typical fantasy heroines, Abess of Shaston is neither and invinsable sorceress nor a princess in desguise. She is clever and compassionate with an independent spirit, sensible though easily led astray by insatiable curiosity." This book is nothing as it seem and is a perfect time to say, "Don't judge a book by its cover."
