In November 1382, the month of the dead, Abbess Hildegard rides out for York from the Abbey of Meaux. This is no ordinary journey—it is a time of rival popes, a boy king, and a shaky peace in the savage aftermath of Wat Tyler’s murder—and Hildegard has embarked on a perilous mission to try to secure the future of her priory.

Traveling alone, she discovers danger, encountering first a gibbet with five bloodied corpses and then the body of a youth, brutally butchered. Who was the boy, how was he connected to the men hanging from the gibbet, and what do these gruesome deaths mean? Hildegard is determined to uncover the truth, no matter how terrible it may be. When even her childhood home, Castle Hutton, turns out not to be a safe haven from murder, Hildegard realizes she will have to summon all of her courage and wisdom to counter the dark forces that threaten her friends and family as well as her country.

CagneyC's thoughts on "Hangman Blind"

For some reason, I found this book hard to follow, but I enjoyed it anyway.  I kept getting Ralph and Roger mixed up and once in a while had to remind myself who was who.  The killing of the young men at the beginning of the book did not seem to be solved satisfactorily, and I could not figure out what their deaths had to do with the rest of the book for the most part.  If I have a chance, I may read the book again more closely to get more understanding of the actual story.
