Another excellent installment in the series. Of course, this is only book two, but my hope is the series continues along at its high standard. Once again, the mystery is complex and the culprit not immediately obvious. Only when Sister Fiacre was killed did the light go on and I guessed who and the motivation for the killings. I love the detail of the cloister and the nuns duties and routines. Margaret Frazer really did a good job of immersing the reader in time and place.

For those, like me, who really enjoy visualizing a scene, there are a couple of maps of St. Frideswide on Margaret Frazer's website which you might want to check out. She also possessed a gift for making a simple scene quite poignant. The whole scene with Meg and Barnaby and the orange had me tearing up.

The only annoyance in the entire book was, again, Montfort. But he is meant to be annoying, so Margaret Frazer did her job there. This one revolves around the death of her beloved Uncle Thomas. While attending to her aunt and the funeral events, another man, one disliked by virtually everyone who knew him, is struck dead in front of all the visitors during the funeral feast.

Frevisse is asked to look into the situation and determine if the man was struck down by God or man. The Sister Frevisse mysteries, while obviously set in a completely different Another wonderful mystery with Sister Frevisse at the center! The Sister Frevisse mysteries, while obviously set in a completely different time period, with clearly very different characters etc. There is Sister Frevisse, of course, who is smart, articulate, and who sees things others do not.

She is not afraid to speak up when the need calls for it. She is depended upon by everyone from those in the Stable to those in the highest levels of the Church. She is a woman ahead of her time, who loves both the Lord and the Body of Christ, loves her sisters in the convent, cares for those around her, even the one who is identified as the murderer in each book.

I relate to her on a very deep level. There are recurring characters: Furthermore, the research and writing in these books is marvelous. Set in and around the Years of Our Lord , these books give the reader insight into the times and trials of those who lived in England during these years. I highly recommend the Sister Frevisse mysteries! Jan 05, Jill Holmes rated it it was amazing. This fourth novel in Margaret Frazer's series centering on Dame Frevisse, a Benedictine nun, has both personal and global aspects for Frevisse.

She has hastened in the early winter of to the village of Ewelme to her Uncle Thomas Chaucer's manor hoping to be in time to spend his final hours with him. She is too late. It makes a dreadful loss even worse; Thomas had cared for her growing up, introduced her to books, and been a dear friend in adulthood. She is less close to her nattering Aunt This fourth novel in Margaret Frazer's series centering on Dame Frevisse, a Benedictine nun, has both personal and global aspects for Frevisse. She is less close to her nattering Aunt Matilda and her cousin Alice, now married to the powerful Earl of Suffolk.

At the house in mourning, she is surprised to meet Bishop Beaufort, a Cardinal of the Church and uncle to the boy king Henry VI, and, as she learns, the best friend and cousin of Thomas Chaucer. Thomas not only entrusted a personal message to Frevisse by way of Beaufort but had clearly spoken often to his friend about his learned, wise, and insightful niece.

Sister Frevisse Series

At the funeral feast, a boastful man disliked by all is stricken and later dies. Beaufort asks Frevisse to talk among the servants and guests and seek possible poisons. The dead man's ward and likely his next wife had he lived, Lady Anne, is suspect because she can now marry the man of her dreams. A jealous lover lurks in the background; he also has motive for Sir Clement Sharpe's death. Beaufort calls the large assemblage of suspects into a room and waits with them all for Frevisse to name the murderer. And will Beaufort see her as a trusted, useful ally or a country-bred nun who should return posthaste to convent life?

Apr 15, Robin rated it it was amazing Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This volume of the Sister Frevisse series is a very personal one for the main character because her uncle Thomas Chaucer dies. He had raised her from the time she was orphaned and had been a constant source of acceptance, understanding, respect and care. He had always encouraged her to pursue her education and develop her first-rate mind. I will be sorry to no longer have that relationship in Frevisse's life because it draws out a part of the character no one else does.

Frevisse's relationship w This volume of the Sister Frevisse series is a very personal one for the main character because her uncle Thomas Chaucer dies. Frevisse's relationship with her cousin Alys, which proves to be a critical relationship in future novels of the series, is introduced in all of its complexities. The mystery is absorbing, and Frevisse is always at her best when drawn into the affairs of high and mighty. The device of including the Benedictine offices is not as seamless in these novels as it usually is, but it is not distracting either.

Sep 06, Dennis Fischman rated it really liked it Shelves: What I admire about this series is that Dame Frevisse is a brilliant woman with a real personality, full of quirks and weaknesses as well as strengths. She's committed herself to the convent, but that doesn't make her Sister Thomasine, saintly and never in doubt. She sees people too well, and that includes herself. In that respect, she's a character modern people can understand.

But her issues are issues of her time and place, never 20th-century issues in medieval garb. I thought I was going to s What I admire about this series is that Dame Frevisse is a brilliant woman with a real personality, full of quirks and weaknesses as well as strengths. I thought I was going to solve this mystery, but it turned out I had swallowed a red herring. Fortunately I wasn't allergic to it.

Ancient Egypt: Crash Course World History #4

Mar 26, Yi rated it it was ok Recommends it for: This is definitely not great. I had so much high hopes for this book because of all the rave reviews, about "surprising psychology twists, and to "transport back to the 14th century". Well, maybe it did transported me to the 14th century, and it's not such a hot time to be around. The twist is not that shocking either. I hate Sister Frevisse citing those quotes. I can go on and on. The ending is, thankfully, a bit better. Maybe the Medieval stuffs are not just my type. The Dame Frevisse books concerned with the intrigues associated with the reign of King Henry VI are generally much more gripping than the others, and this one was no exception.

Introducing properly the Beaufort clan, who are at the heart of much of the path to the War of the Roses, this book also gets bonus points for including a Wycliff Bible reference and a theological rebel side to Frevisse we sadly never see again. Mar 30, Terri rated it really liked it. Dame Frevisse receives word that her beloved Uncle has died. She returns home and during the funeral meal, Sir Clement a man detested by all challenges God to strike him down if he is wrong. And well, he has an attack and dies. The Bishop wants to be certain it was God and not man who killed him.

Sister Frevisse asks questions and finds it WAS man's work after all. I love the historical detail in this series. Dec 21, Carole Moran rated it really liked it Shelves: Margaret Frazer writes a series of murder mysteries set in the fifteenth century in England. All, thus far, have been good reads, but this book and a couple of others include much of England's actual history and introduces actual characters involved in England's behind-the-scenes politics. The relationships among the characters are also mentioned and utilized to enhance the story. For history buffs who want some light reading, this series has much to offer.

The Bishop's Tale (Sister Frevisse, #4) by Margaret Frazer

Mar 07, Sandra Strange rated it liked it. This is a superior medieval series, each novel set in a specific time period, often with action concerning the political doings of the time. Each novel also explores the world of the particular tale, in this case, the world of the Church with all of its political intriguing. Jan 19, Katie Bee rated it really liked it Shelves: I enjoyed the solution to this mystery, which isn't exactly anachronistic but has a common element of today's world appearing to great bafflement in Dame Frevisse's.

I was also glad to see that the repercussions of her actions in The Servant's Tale and the Outlaw's Tale were not shrugged off, but continue to affect her development as a character. Apr 22, William Bradford rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of the earlier books in this excellent series. Lots of character development set among a well written story that keeps you guessing until the end. As with the other books, great attention to historical detail is one of the most enjoyable things. This books has as a central theme Frevisse meeting with Bishop Beaufort and the interplay between the two is most interesting.

Oct 08, William rated it it was ok. The first half to two thirds of the book dragged I would give that section a "one star rating" and it picked up somewhat over the last third. Overall, not very interesting. I read the first book in the series two and a half years ago and was unimpressed. I recently decided to try the series again, but mow I remember why I dropped it in the first place.

I doubt that I will continue. May 17, Argum rated it it was amazing Shelves: Uncle Chaucer is dead and at the funeral shenanigans ensue. Upon his deathbed, Chaucer commends Frevisse to his cousin the Bishop. When a nasty old man who just challenged God to strike him dead is in fact struck dead, the Bishop commands Frevisse investigate.

A sad tale really, but the Bishop is an interesting character. Did not like the ending because I really felt for the bad guy. May 11, Janet rated it liked it Shelves: Aug 15, Judy rated it really liked it Shelves: This story takes place at the home of Thomas Chaucer, Frevisse's uncle, at the time of his death. Cardinal Bishop Beaufort, friend and cousin of Chaucer, is a main character in this story and he appears in other books in this series.
