"Readers will note Franklin's hand in the storytelling and see the freshness Norman brings to the tale, filled with fascinating characters who drive the plot as much as the tempestuous backdrop. With its bit of intrigue, historical setting and lovely characters, readers will be captivated by this compelling tale."--Historical Novels Review
"Medieval-mystery writing at its best."--NY Daily News
Praise for Grave Goods: "Richly detailed, almost indecently thrilling."--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review (on Grave Goods)
" Both harsh and lovely, this novel seizes you from the first page, heart and soul, and doesn't let go!"--Nancy Bilyeau, author of The Chalice
"Vivid and engaging...succeeds brilliantly as both historical fiction and crime thriller. [A] terrific book...with a dozen twists."--Diana Gabaldon, Washington Post (on Mistress of the Art of Death)
"One of the most compelling, suspenseful mysteries I've read in years."--New York Times bestselling author Sharon Kay Penman (on Mistress of the Art of Death)
