After the Norman Conquest, fate throws a studious monk and a bluff mason together for a lifelong friendship.
The monk, Thurgot, senses Kenrick’s destiny, a man who saves him from drowning near the Farne Isles. His Christian beliefs entwine with Kenrick’s pragmatic talents to overcome the obstacles of revolt, persecution and hardship that these turbulent times present. Each is able to leave his mark in late eleventh- and early twelfth-century Northumbria.
Even today, the visitor to Durham can admire the work of the first master mason. Follow his trials and tribulations in The Master Of The Chevron, the third novel in John Broughton’s Saint Cuthbert trilogy.
