About the Author
Karen Brooks is the author of thirteen books, an academic of more than twenty years' experience, a newspaper columnist and social commentator, and has appeared regularly on national TV and radio. Before turning to academia, she was an army officer for five years, and prior to that dabbled in acting.
She lives in Hobart, Tasmania, in a beautiful stone house with its own marvellous history. When she's not writing, she's helping her husband Stephen in his brewery, Captain Bligh's Ale and Cider, or cooking for family and friends, travelling, cuddling and walking her dogs, stroking her cats, or curled up with a great book and dreaming of more stories.

The book is written in a somewhat colloquial style and it's easy to forget sometimes you are in the 15th century. A little predictable at times and basically a romance but enjoyable.
This book brought to light the utterly restrictive and draconian grip the Church had on society during the middle-ages and their apparent control of the brewing industry which was very enlightening. It also exposes the plight of women in those days being held accountable for the 'sins of Eve'.
