Publisher's Summary

AD 848. Bernwyn of Lythe spurns marriage and chooses to remain a virgin, dedicated to Christ. When she is found murdered in a chapel, butterflies found resting on her body are taken to be a sign from God. But what if Bernwyn was not all she seemed? Could her saintly deeds have been mistakenly attributed to her, and the people have set up a shrine to a false virgin?


What the Critics Say

"With the combined imaginations of Bernard Knight…Susanna Gregory, Ian Morson, and Philip Gooden, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read" (Daily Mail on The Sacred Stone)
"The various excellent crime writers each weave a clever and inventive tale around a central theme" (Good Book Guideon King Arthur’s Bones)

I usually like historical thrillers which is why I bought this book, however I found this extremely boring. I persevered as long as I could but just could not get into it. I don't like to not finishing a book but I'm afraid I had to throw in the towel. Each of the stories are written by a different author and follow on from the last but didn't hold my attention. Sorry not recommended.
