The seventh installment of Sharan Newman's critically acclaimed Catherine LeVendeur medieval mystery series, To Wear the White Cloak continues the story of this most remarkable woman and her unique family. Set against the backdrop of twelfth century France, Catherine's life is both a reflection of the bonds placed upon a woman in her society and the ways in which a strong personality could triumph and succeed in spite of those strictures. Catherine is an independent spirit, fiercely loyal to both her faith and her family, and that loyalty will be sorely tested when a Knight Templar is discovered brutally murdered after Catherine and her family return to France after a long absence. Catherine's closely held secret about her family's Jewish roots are threatened to be revealed and ultimately it falls upon Catherine to discover the person who would kill a soldier of God and why Catherine's family would be targeted in such a horrendous fashion.

Filled with fascinating details of medieval life and the intricate interplay between the Christian and Jewish cultures of the time, To Wear the White Cloak is a compelling mystery and a riveting historical rolled into one.
