The summer of 1273 is peaceful for most of Englandaexcept in the village of Tyndal where Martin the cooper has been poisoned at the local inn.
Could the murderer be his usual whore who is about to be tossed aside for another woman? Or the innkeeperas niece with secret reasons for fearing him? Perhaps the blacksmith did it, a man whose temper might have exploded when he was mocked once too often. Martin had enough enemies. The killer could be anyone.
This crime has naught to do with the priory, but Prioress Eleanor grieves for her friendathe newly bereaved Crowner Ralfaand offers what help she and former apothecary Sister Anne can.
When her own problems multiply, Eleanor has good reason to regret her kindness. Her new anchoress terrifies her servants and welcomes visitors to her window at night. One of those visitors has been Brother Thomas, a man the prioress secretly loves and whose loyalty to her as head of Tyndal Priory is now suspect.
Bodies multiply. Suspects disappear. No one likes the direction the evidence points, but Godas justice must be renderedaeven for the forsaken soul. Forsaken Soul is the fifth novel in the Medeival Mystery series.

Description: Like New. May have slight shelfwear from storage. Forsaken Soul A Medeival Mystery By Royal, Priscilla Starred Review. Set in the summer of 1273, Royal's excellent fifth historical (after 2007's Justice for the Damned) finds Prioress Eleanor of Tyndal beset by various problems: the local villagers disapprove of the nightly consultations Eleanor's difficult new anchoress has been conducting; the wife of her friend Crowner Ralf has recently died in childbirth, leaving him with an infant daughter; and she continues to struggle with her attraction to Brother Thomas, a monk. Then Martin the Cooper, a brute disliked by many, dies in bed with a prostitute at a Tyndal inn, an apparent poisoning victim. More horrific murders by poison follow before Eleanor and Ralf discover the truth in the stunning conclusion. Against an authentic backdrop of medieval life and lore, Royal once again brings alive characters who are true to their period yet exhibit emotions and feelings that 21st-century readers will recognize as their own.
