The Wandering Arm

By

In 12th century France, Catherine LeVendeur and her husband Edgar are recovering from the loss of a newborn child when duty calls. A villain, possibly a Jewish trader with many enemies, has stolen and sold priceless Catholic artifacts right under the noses of both Catholics and Jews alike. When the trader is murdered, the two groups must work together, with Catherine and Edgar’s assistance, to identify the murderer and the mastermind behind the robberies.

The novel, a slow read at first, becomes quite intriguing as events unfold. Readers in search of a detailed portrait of the Middle Ages will be delighted to discover this novel.
