Reviews
"Beautifully written, richly imaginative, and graced with fully realized characters. . . . A feast for fans of historical fiction with a magic twist." --Booklist, starred review

"Stamper's dark and well-researched historical tale moves swiftly, incorporating elements of the miraculous and affectingly punctuated with elegant watercolor illustrations in hues that recall illuminated texts." --Publishers Weekly

"Edyth's narration builds a rich picture of the Middle Ages, both in the beauty of the ink and the illuminating she eventually works on and the merciless reality of the bubonic plague, and her synesthesia gives a striking elegance to her descriptions." --The Bulletin

"The impression that will linger in the minds of those who read this expansive, beautifully crafted novel is the triumph of empathy above all." --Bookpage
