Read full description of the books The Service of the Dead:Political unrest permeates York at the cusp of the fifteenth century, as warring factions take sides on who should be the rightful king--Richard II or his estranged, powerful cousin in exile, Henry Bolingbroke. Independent minded twenty-year-old Kate Clifford is struggling to dig out from beneath the debt left by her late husband. Determined to find a way to be secure in her own wealth and establish her independence in a male dominated society, Kate turns one of her properties near the minster into a guest house and sets up a business. In a dance of power, she also quietly rents the discreet bedchambers to the wealthy, powerful merchants of York for nights with their mistresses.
But the brutal murder of a mysterious guest and the disappearance of his companion for the evening threatens all that Kate has built. Before others in town hear word of a looming scandal, she must call upon all of her hard-won survival skills to save herself from ruin.
Read information about the author
My novels are inspired by my study of the late Middle Ages in Northern Europe. My 3 mystery series feature medieval sleuths: the Kate Clifford mysteries, set in York at the cusp of the 15th c, feature a strong, independent widow forged on the warring northern marches. The Owen Archer mysteries are set in England and Wales in the late 14th century. The Margaret Kerr mysteries in Scotland in the late 13th/early 14th centuries, at the beginning of the Wars of Independence.
AKA Emma Campion or Candace M. Robb I blog about writing, medieval history, writing women's stories, and feature new scholarship in my field at ecampion.wordpress.com
