Philadelphia, PA Author Publishes Mystery Novel

( In the Convent: A Frances Yates Mystery, a new book by Marjorie G. Jones, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

In the sequel to In the Cards, Hermetic scholar Dame Francis Yates is invited by a former student Juan Carlos Ortiz to Mexico City with the intent to speak in the convent of seventeenth century feminist nun, Sor Juana de la Cruz.
