All the danger and intrigue of 14th-century England spring to life in this "compelling" ( Publishers Weekly ) series about the brave, incorruptible Abbess of Meaux.
Abbess Hildegard may consider herself "just a nun with no useful skills or connections," yet her loyalty and intelligence have brought her to the attention of King Richard II himself--not the safest place to be, when the king has enemies on all sides. As Hildegard wrestles with her role as a spy in the parliament that is hastily gathering at Westminster, Cassandra Clark's A Parliament of Spies shows us the human side of history, giving readers new reason to follow Publishers Weekly's rallying cry: "Medievalists rejoice!"

Not bad, but definitely not good either. I put this in the catagory of "bodice-ripping" stories. A paperback, romance/mystery with silly characters and a confusing plot. Anyone who believes the picture on the front cover is an Abbess in the Middle Ages may like this book. I'm not sure though.

This is a Dog's breakfast of a book. She needs a good editor and a believable and engaging plot. The suspension of disbelief required to accept a nun running around, bonking strange men, and entrusted with national secrets is beyond all. A silly book, badly written with only the historical context to mitigate the mess.
