Despite the extent of her wounds Darwin makes a valiant effort to save her life – sadly he fails, but almost before his eyes a miracle unfolds and in death her fatal injuries disappear and once more becomes a vision of beauty. She is compared to a picture of the Madonna hanging in the monastery - and the resemblance impossible to ignore.Could this really be the Mother of God?

There could not be a more credible witness to these events than Doctor Darwin, but before he can fully grasp this turn of events, word spreads like wildfire and thousands of pilgrims descend on the town which bring chaos and ultimately disaster to the streets of Shrewsbury.Meanwhile the prospective MP for the town, Benjamin Disraeli, is having some local difficulties of his own and Doctor Darwin is called upon to attend the aftermath of a duel involving Disraeli and an irate husband. But this distraction brings Darwin its own rewards as it aids his quest to discover if the miraculous or macabre has occurred within the walls of the monastery.In his pursuit of the truth he is assisted by characters operating both inside and outside of the law – but with their help he finally uncovers the shocking, true story behind the Madonna of Shrewsbury.
