&;Engrossing . . . Imbued with the flavor of English medieval life, Robb&;s story melds true events with fiction to create a gripping historical mystery&; (Publishers Weekly).   When young nun Joanna Calverley dies of a fever in the town of Beverley in the summer of 1365, she is buried quickly for fear of the plague. But a year later, Archbishop Thoresby learns of a woman who has arrived in York claiming to be the resurrected nun, talking of relic-trading and miracles. And death seems to ride in her wake.   The archbishop sends Owen Archer to retrace the woman&;s journey, an investigation that leads him across the north from Leeds to Beverley to Scarborough. Along the way he encounters Geoffrey Chaucer, a spy for the king of England, who believes there is a connection between the nun&;s troubles, renegade mercenaries, and the powerful Percy family. Back in York, however, Owen&;s wife, Lucie, pregnant with their first child, has won the confidence of the mysterious nun and realizes that there are secrets hidden in the woman&;s seemingly mad ramblings . . .   Based on an enigmatic entry in the records of Clementhorpe Nunnery, this authentic, gripping mystery conjures a fourteenth century ripe with forbidden passions and political intrigue.   &;[Robb] lives up to the standard set by master medievalist Ellis Peters.&; &;Booklist
