About the Author

Jill Dalladay is a classicist, historian and former head teacher who pioneered the Cambridge Latin course. She lives in Whitby.


"Jill Dalladay has presented us with a well crafted novel about one of the most enigmatic women in early Christian times in England. Hild was abbess and teacher at Whitby and is today venerated as a saint. From her pagan upbringing to her conversion to Christianity, her story is presented with a sharp eye for historic detail together with finely drawn characters. This is skilful and accomplished writing." -- Peter Tremayne, author of The Sister Fidelma Mysteries
