Idonea did not want to live the rest of her life in a nunnery. Her father, Baldwin de Redvers, a knight for King Henry II and a well-known merchant, felt a nunnery was in his motherless daughter's best interest in the event he died in combat. Baldwin was encouraged by one of the most powerful men in the country, Chancellor Thomas Becket, to place his daughter, Idonea, in a nunnery. In later years when the chancellor became Archbishop of Canterbury and fled England to France in exile, now Sister Idonea had been called to his presence. She still felt hatred for this man whom she believed ruined her life. When she met with him, he asked a favor from her--a mission which was considered dangerous. Would Sister Idonea accept this mission? Sister Idonea met the archbishop on two further occasions--the last time to witness the most horrendous and sacrilegious murder in history.

An unthinkable danger. An unexpected choice. Annabel, once the daughter of a wealthy merchant, is trapped in indentured servitude to Lord Ranulf, a recluse who is rumored to be both terrifying and beastly. Her circumstances are made even worse by the proximity of Lord Ranulf’s bailiff—a revolting man who has made unwelcome advances on Annabel in the past. Believing that life in a nunnery is the best way to escape the escalation of the bailiff’s vile behavior and to preserve the faith that sustains her, Annabel is surprised to discover a sense of security and joy in her encounters with Lord Ranulf. As Annabel struggles to confront her feelings, she is involved in a situation that could place Ranulf in grave danger. Ranulf’s future, and possibly his heart, may rest in her hands, and Annabel must decide whether to follow the plans she has cherished or the calling God has placed on her heart.

Excerpt from The Merchant's Daughter, Vol. 3 of 3 "Wild tales and rumours went abroad; And each look'd strangely in his neighbour's face, And searchingly. Foe smiled on foe; and friends Spoke in low whispers - brief meaning words, Or quickly pass'd upon the other side With downcast look. Suspicion's plague-spots Spread on all around."

John Salinsky

The Bristle Merchants Daughter: about the book John Salinsky wanted to find out more about his mother's life. She was born in 1902, the first child of parents who had emigrated from Eastern Europe in search of a better life and freedom from fear. She tried to become a doctor at a time when women doctors were unusual. She did not succeed, but her three sons all became doctors. She suffered from depression as a young married woman and had psychoanalysis with one of Sigmund Freud's early followers in London. She brought up her family in Leeds and died at the age of 96, having lived through nearly the whole of the twentieth century. Apart from a few unusual features it was 'an ordinary life'. But ones relationship with ones mother is never ordinary. In this biography, John Salinsky begins by using his imagination to picture the life of his young grandparents in Tsarist Russia. He traces his mother's girlhood and her life as a young wife and parent up to the point of his own birth in 1941. From here on he blends imagination with memory and inquiry, trying to make sense of the complex emotions that bind a mother and her son in love and conflict. His description of the closeness they achieved in her final years makes moving reading.
