A Woman Alone in a Dark TimeReviewed in the United States on 22 November 2015
I wondered if I would like the historical fiction by Haywood Smith since it is such a change from the Red Hat women. I do like it. The protagonist once again makes the point that women seeking an independent life in the medieval period faced a difficult road. Her struggles bring her through loss of her child to her inlaws , finding a way to support herself, and discovering a gift for medical healing and learning are believable and sympathetic. The love story is not rushed and the ending is emotional. Not sorry I read it.
Enjoyable ReadReviewed in the United States on 11 July 2013
Haywood Smith always writes meaningful characters who touch you. There are a host of them in this book. I thought the pace was a little slow in the first third; however, it quickly picked up and closed with a great ending. The final third of book I truely loved!! It has so many themes that touch one's heart and faith.

The Healing Profession in the Time of CrusadesReviewed in the United States on 14 June 2013
I've only read one other Haywood Smith book, which I liked, so I was curious as to how she handled a historical novel. Excellent, realistic characters, I could just see that village where the heroine landed. We lived with her as she becomes a healer, growing in her previously-shattered confidence as she becomes more useful to the village people, especially to her teacher Nonny. When Nonny's son comes home physically and mentally ill from the Crusades, we are irretrievably drawn in, and the story that develops is both suspenseful and satisfying at the end. A great serious read, but not for the squeamish.
