I’ve been locked out of my blog for months but now I’m in I’d like to wish all fans of Hildegard a very happy and medieval new year.
Hildegard and the Abbot are on their way home to Meaux. At Netley he made her a life-changing proposition but what will her answer be? The two militant monks, Gregory and Egbert accompany them on the long sea journey over the pirate-infested German Ocean – as the North Sea was called – and who knows what dangers await?
Hubert fears that his abbey will have been wrecked during his absence. Hildegard fears that her answer may not be the one he wants.
Meanwhile what is happening to King Richard? After the cruel fate of his allies during the Merciless Parliament will he survive the hatred of the avaricious and relentless enemies of the Crown or will they finally destroy him?
I’m about to start chapter one to find out what will happen next so remember to keep an eye out for news about Murder at Meaux.
