The thirteenth in the Roger the Chapman series
Roger the Chapman is not a superstitious man. He hears stories of murders and haunted houses around the market town of Bristol, and chooses to believe the more prosaic explanation every time. But when Roger is attacked in the very house where a woman murdered her violent husband thirty years previously, he is forced to admit that something strange is going on . . .

Kate Sedley, a student of Anglo-Saxon and medieval history, lives in England. She is married and has a son, a daughter, and three grandchildren. ""The Saint John's Fern"" is the ninth novel in her critically acclaimed series featuring Roger the Chapman.
Roger the Chapman finds himself caught in a summer storm as he returns from a trip. He takes refuge in an old house that was once a murder scene and is lucky to escape alive. When he regains consciousness at home, no one believes his story. Although his reputation for nosiness often gets him in trouble, he decides to satisfy his curiosity by investigating. None of Bristol's citizens admit to hearing about anything strange happening in the old house, but Roger continues his search. What he learns about the strange house, the people of Bristol, and the political intrigue of the day surprises him. There are many good citizens who have a great deal to hide. Sedley evokes the bustling atmosphere of a medieval market town well, and Roger the Chapman and his family are energetic and engaging characters. Fans of medieval mysteries need to know about this series. Barbara Bibel
