More About This Title A Dark Night Hidden


Josse D’Acquin and the Abbess Helewise are appalled by the fanatical new priest, Father Micah, but are even more horrified when his body turns up by the side of the road. And when it appears that a band of evangelical heretics, whom Micah condemned to the stake, might be behind his death, the Abbess is torn between her compassion for their suffering and her duty to the church. When Josse realizes that his desire to save the heretics cannot be condoned by Helewise, he is forced to act against her wishes, risking the greatest friendship he has. For the Abbess, her friendship with Josse is deepening the longer he stays at the abbey, as is her awareness of his attractions as a man.


“A well and gently written medieval [series] featuring the abbess Helewise and her friend, the French knight Josse d’Acquin. . . . The relationship between the widowed abbess and the soldier of fortune is done with a firm, light touch. . . . Readers will be impatient to have this oddly matched but engaging duo back again.” —Booklist
