Product description

Review

"A substantial historical novel set in turbulent 15th century England. Ably explores themes of romance and politics."--Kirkus Reviews

"Describe(s) late medieval trade and artisanship in fascinating detail. Stands out for its engrossing storytelling, multidimensional characters, and intriguing interpretation of everyone's favorite love-him-or-hate-him monarch, Richard III."--Booklist

"Readers of historical fiction will be pleased with Bennett's sure-handed storytelling."--Publishers Weekly

"A richly textured historical novel."--The Times (London)

"A splendid blend of romance and history."--BookPleasures.com

"Vanora Bennett knows what drives her characters, both fictional and historical, and they seem as real and easy to relate to as your next-door neighbor. Bennett's medieval England comes alive in ways a reader can immediately relate to, even while being transported away from the modern world."--Christian Science Monitor
