Cast In Stone

By Rachel Bentham.

A young woman is caught between old pagan ways and the new Christianity when she is taken from her forest home to model for the stonemasons, who are building a great cathedral at Wells.

Rachel Bentham's atmospheric drama is set in Wells at the end of the 12th Century where a great cathedral is being built.

Elfrede, 15, becomes a model for the carvings there - both for the overtly sexual and pagan gargoyles and a statue of the virgin to rival Our Lady of Walsingham.

Taken from her woodland home to lodge in the town with a Christian family, Elfrede resorts to the old pagan spells in revenge for a shocking act of violence.
