“Fourteenth-century England is the time of myths, both real and imagined, religious intensity, hope, and fear. Pat Walsh has given us a well-written novel that connects a story of coming of age with a supernatural mystery bound to leave readers wanting more.”
— Jack Blanchard, Fairy Godmother, Washington, DC

A buried angel! When a hobgoblin confesses the horrible secret of Crowfield Abbey to the monks' apprentice, the boy is drawn into a haunting medieval mystery and a world of Old Magic.

An angel is buried behind the abbey! It's 1347, and Will, an orphan boy, lives and works as an apprentice of the Crowfield monks. Sent into the forest to gather firewood, he stumbles across a trapped, wounded creature no bigger than a cat.The little goblin shares a terrible secret: Buried deep in the snow behind the monastery is an angel. But, Will wonders, how can an angel die? And what does this angel have to do with the history of Crowfield? When two cloaked strangers show up and start asking questions, Will is drawn into a dangerous world of Old Magic.
