When Ingrid, a young nun serving in the infirmary at Greyleigh Abbey, discovers by accident that she can work miracles of healing, the world acclaims her as a saint. Ingrid is not so sure. Her secret doubts intensify when Jack, a rowdy, womanizing troubadour, as famous for sin as Ingrid is for sanctity comes under her care. The conflict he awakens between body and soul catapults Ingrid into a world of unimagined pleasures and perils beyond the abbey gates.

Beyond the Abbey Gates was previously published in hardcover under the title The Age of Miracles.

Review:

"MacCoun excels at rendering a believable world where real people face issues that supersede time and place."—New York Times Book Review

"MacCoun has a distinctive writing style, and she invents an original heroine, a young woman possessed of depth with great presence and dignity. This book marks the extraordinary debut of a fine writer."— Rocky Mountain News

"By a promising first-time novelist, an enchanting historical romance."—Booklist

"More than a good read, it is a story about grace, which, by definition, can never be deserved."—United Methodist Reporter, National Christian Reporter
"With freshness, humor, and extraordinary psychological depth, Catherine MacCoun takes two archetypes—the nun and the troubadour—and clothes them in quirky human character and in flesh theat we come to know as intimately as our own. her depiction of the riotous medieval world her lovers inhabit is equally detailed and sensual. Prepare to go on a pilgrimage worthy of Chaucer."—Elizabeth Cunningham, author of The Return of the Goddess and The Passion of Mary Magdalen
