When the 14 year old Constance is abducted from the door one night and Alice keeps searching for her a chain of events begin that sees Alice first losing her home and possessions and then her place at the priory. With the help of Brother Jon who's sister, Elizabeth de Grey, disappeared in similar circumstances Alice is determined to find the girls and set them free no matter the personal cost.
Book 2: With her property returned, Constance and Elizabeth now free and a fresh start ahead of her as Jon's wife Alice de Grey has reopened her business and taken in 3 of the children she looked after at the priory. But trouble arrives again and Alice is defending her family and home as she is caught up in the mystery of the casket. Shortly after her husband died some Italian men raided her house and took a casket hidden by her husband. Now years later another group are back and happy to murder anyone in their path to retrieve it. With Jon away in France fighting and searching for the elusive Sir William Rokeby. Alice must fend for herself and her family, return the contents of the box without getting caught and stop the murderous gang from continuing their campaign of violence.
Book 3: Jon returns to France to pick up the trail of Sir William Rokeby while life continues at home. Only more difficulties arise when Alessandro's godmother, Sarah Dalton, is struck ill and treatment fails to work. Father Aldous calls on Alice to visit and meet Dr Servian who has agreed to treat her for free. But who is the Doctor, he appears to be blind and rather helpless, but rather inept and vague. What's more Sarah is only getting worse. When Alice's niece, Mary de Grey, is abducted by her nursemaid things become difficult with the search parties all day and Dr Dr Servian's demands that she attend Sarah's bedside all night. Alice has to find the stamina to keep going in order to discover the identity of Dr de Servian and rescue Mary.
All stories follow Alice as she finds herself involved in murder and mayhem as she goes through life in the 1352 London.
The author brings the whole atmosphere of those days to life even down to the smells, you really feel you are there.
Throughout the series there is plenty going on including murder, romance, hardship, bravery, love.
I can't speak highly enough of this trilogy and really urge people to read for themselves and discover the pleasure I had reading them.
