The Abbess of Crewe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An elegant fable about intrigue, corruption, and electronic surveillance, 'The Abbess of Crewe' (1974) is set in an English Benedictine convent. Steely and silky Abbess Alexandra has bugged the convent, and rigged her election. But the cat gets out of the bag, and--plunged into scandal--the serene Abbess faces a Vatican inquiry.

Synopsis:

An election is held at the abbey of Crewe and the new lady abbess takes up her high office with implacable serenity.

Synopsis:

This is a satirical fantasy about ecclesiastical and other kinds of politics. The author has also written The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and Girls of Slender Means.
