Product description

Review

'A compelling medieval fable, written from the heart and melded to a driving narrative which never once loses its tremendous pace' ― Guardian

'An irresistible blend of intellect and passion' ― Mail on Sunday

'This remarkable novel resembles an illuminated manuscript mapped with angels and mountains and signposts, an allegory for today and yesterday too. A beautiful, unsettling moral fiction about virtue and intolerance' ― Observer

'Remarkable...Utterly absorbing...richly detailed and finely imagined' ― Sunday Telegraph

'The lucidity of Jill Paton Walsh's style and the dexerity of the narrative are such that her book reads more like a good thriller than a weighty novel of ideas...An ingenious fable' ― The Times

Book Description

A beautiful, magical novel.
