KIRKUS REVIEW

A richly detailed period novel of life in medieval England during the reign of Richard II. The story is of a family whose father sinned in selling the golden hand and substituting a miracle-working leprous hand which became the supreme relic around which a cathedral was erected; whose chief son Alfred became priest and Abbott when his beloved was forced by her mother to marry a Flemish businessman- and of Jane, whose black magic was used for good in the community until she became involved with the heir to the manor.
