n the spring of 1282, Prioress Eleanor stops at Mynchen Buckland Priory, where she finds that Prioress Amicia has been accused of murder and is being incarcerated until a trial can be held.
orrified at the thought that a religious person could commit such a terrible act, Eleanor pretends to hurt her ankle in order to have a reason to linger at the Priory while she investigates the murder of the unpopular village shrew. Most villagers had a good reason to dislike this woman who thought nothing of blackmailing anyone who might have a secret they didn't want shared.
