When Henry VIII destroyed Barnwell Priory, Cambridge, in 1538 he altered the locality for ever. In two parallel stories, one Tudor, the other set in 1990, we see how the Evil men do lives after them affecting the places we live in, but that the Good redeems itself in many ways. A murder at Stourbridge Fair in 1534, the suicide of a Homeless Project Manager hounded in 1990, the loss of a new-born baby and the painful end of Margaret Clifton, local visionary and artist, form parts of Ann Hales- Tooke's carefully researched story. The exciting action moves at times from Barnwell to Ely, Walsingham Norfolk, to Smithfield, Newgate Prison and the Tyburn Gallows. A Barnwell resident for 30 years, Ann describes in a fast moving narrative that is a fascinating blend of historical fact and fiction, tragedies and resurgences of community spirit that can transform a neighbourhood.
