"A splendid blend of romance and history."--BookPleasures.com
"A substantial historical novel set in turbulent 15th century England. Ably explores themes of romance and politics."--Kirkus Reviews
"A richly textured historical novel."--The Times (London)
"Readers of historical fiction will be pleased with Bennett's sure-handed storytelling."--Publishers Weekly
"Vanora Bennett knows what drives her characters, both fictional and historical, and they seem as real and easy to relate to as your next-door neighbor. Bennett's medieval England comes alive in ways a reader can immediately relate to, even while being transported away from the modern world."--Christian Science Monitor
