The Cloisterman

A novel by

England, 1511.

A new Tudor monarch has just been crowned: a handsome, energetic king. His court, so different from his father's, is a glamorous, seductive magnet to ambitious young noblemen from across the country. One such man is Julian Allard who has fled a monastic life in Northumberland to seek love, fame and fortune at the court of Henry VIII.

But when his beloved marries another and the King proves to be a temperamental master, Julian's idyllic life at court begins to fall apart. Dismissing the advice of friends and the wise heads around him, he finds himself on a path to self-destruction, believing only in the dark prophesy of a fortune teller.

Cloisterman is powerful Tudor chronicle from a master storyteller. Juliet Dymoke's portrayal of life at the court of Henry VIII at an exciting time of intellectual and artistic promise, is compelling, moving and utterly convincing.
