Product description

Review

An astonishingly accomplished first novel. A fine, rich, beautiful thriller that never loses sight of the heights to which the human soul can soar, even while it explores the depths to which envy, jealousy, hatred and greed can take it. A delight on all levels, literate, engaging and moving - Manda Scott

A rare accomplishment. It is what a period novel should be but rarely is ... transports you body and soul to another time and place. Read this on a beach in the Med and you'll still feel the chill bite of a North Sea wind blowing up a cobbled 17th century alleyway - Craig Russell

This engrossing, atmospheric novel is not just a satisfying, skilfully constructed mystery with richly developed characters. It is also the vivid evocation of a particular time and place by an author who is herself a historian specializing in 16th and 17th century Scotland. She has used her gifts to the full to create a truly memorable and exciting read - Historical Novels Review --This text refers to the paperback edition.
