In the Convent: A Frances Yates Mystery
By: Marjorie G. Jones
About the Book
In the sequel to In the Cards, Hermetic scholar Dame Francis Yates is invited by a former student Juan Carlos Ortiz to Mexico City with the intent to speak in the convent of seventeenth century feminist nun, Sor Juana de la Cruz.
When a murder occurs in the convent, her fascination with Mexico’s food, spiritual significance, and margaritas quickly shifts to the boldly feminist nuns. She wonders whether the forces of the Inquisition could still be alive in modern-day Mexico.
