The sudden death of a young novice nun raises a series of
puzzling questions in the latest Reverend Mother historical
The Reverend Mother is delighted with her new entrant to the
convent. Young Sister Gertrude is well-educated, has worked
for an accountant and has an appealing sense of humour. But
one autumn morning, Sister Gertrude is found dead inside a
small wooden shed, just beside the river. Surely a young nun
could not die from alcohol poisoning?
But when the Reverend Mother delves more deeply into Sister
Gertrude’s background, she finds some puzzling anomalies.
Why did the young nun not delay her entry to the convent
until after her sister’s wedding? Is it a coincidence that
her father died of a similar illness not long before? And
could there be a link between Sister Gertrude’s death and
the gunpowder explosion on Spike Island? The Reverend Mother
must find the answers to these questions if she is to
safeguard her community from suspicions of murder.
