Anna B: "I know no other author who so completely manages to drag me back in time, leaving me submerged in a past skilfully brought to life. Ms Gaskell Denvil's books engage all my senses,"
M.Kallio: "Gaskell-Denvil has woven a tale of mystery, murder, treachery and love. her work forms a tapestry whose fine threads weave the reader into the story. I do not believe in revealing spoilers in a review, but I will tell you that this book is historical fiction at its best. I highly recommend it to readers of history."
Julia Redlich: "Another splendidly absorbing novel from Barbara Gaskell Denvil, packed as always with intriguing romance, murder most frequent and foul and an understanding of medieval life that hints that the knowledge comes from reincarnation or – as I safely suspect – impeccable research."
Money in the Mattress: "You want to savour every meticulously crafted sentence. When it comes to writing mystery, so many authors sacrifice the literary component for the sake of advancing the plot. Fortunately, Barbara Gaskell Denvil is not one of those authors who cut corners. Her opus weighs in at 400+ pages, and there is not a gram of flab."
Angela: "I love that while the story itself was fiction, the author was able to make it historically accurate. This book is full of twists and turns. Espionage and intrigue all mixed in to one of the best romance novels I've read on some time."
Reena: "A wonderful historical read, set in medieval England, that has everything: romance, murder, mystery, intrigue, spies, and an intricate plot that kept me guessing and second guessing my opinions on the culprit until the last word."
