I did debate with myself long and hard about including teaser lines from ‘St Bartholomew’s Man’, as so many others within my blogging circle seem to have included it in their own meme contributions. However, I have hopefully chosen lines well apart from any others and the book is so holding me in thrall, that I simply couldn’t miss out on the opportunity to share just a few more lines!
So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image, or to read more about both book and author go here.
If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.
A foundation ceremony was indeed splendid, thought Rahere; Alfune had been right. Splendid vestments displayed the wealth of the church; privately, Rahere thought that if the prelates could deck themselves in furs and silks and velvets, and cloth of gold and silver, not to mention sundry jewels besides, he wouldn’t be doing them any harm by increasing his demands on behalf of St. Bartholomew
Everything happened at once. There was a bang; the watching monks burst in, and the Abbot rang his bell. For an instant, no one was fully awake. Then they saw Rahere struggling into his habit; an unaccustomed exertion, and one of the flapping sleeves had sent the log pile across the floor.
