The wily Eleanor of Aquitaine, queen of France and then of England, sends her former ward, Alai s, the sister of the king of France, to retrieve a cache of letters hidden in Canterbury Cathedral. Letters that, in the wrong hands, could bring down the English king. In return, Eleanor promises to reveal a long-held and dangerous secret involving Alai s -- a bargain the French princess is powerless to resist. "
Within the fortnight the letters would be delivered to Fontrevault Abbey. Then Eleanor would be happy, and I would finally get the information she had promised.
So engaged was I in the arduous task of rising that I failed to hear the slight sound behind me that would have signaled my fate. Instead I was taken completely by surprise. The only thing I felt was a strong hand around my neck, another around my waist, and -- before I could cry out -- I smelled the thick, sweet scent of a mandrake-soaked cloth. Unforgiving hands clapped it against my face, and all went dark.
Before Alai s can complete her mission, she is abducted, an event that sets in motion a dangerous plot. It will require all of Alai s's considerable strengths, along with help from the very intriguing leader of the Knights Templar, to unravel dark secrets, unmask evil villains, and escape with her life.
A vividly rendered, spine-tingling historical novel filled with intrigue and peopled with compelling legendary figures, "The Canterbury Papers is an extraordinary tale from a brilliantnew writer.
