A Cold Wind Blowing (1972) is set in the 1530s, and the Mallory and Medley families are affected indirectly and personally by the effects of the dissolution of the monasteries. Plans for a new church have to be abandoned, the local community of Priors is disbanded - and into Piers Medley's life comes a strange silent girl, Isabella. Who is she, and what is her secret? This is a disturbing and powerful story, with twin themes of loss and continuity.
