"A pilgrim tale worthy of Chaucer, evocative, compelling and peopled with unforgettable characters artfully delivered by a master storyteller. Be warned: Dress warmly before beginning this perilous journey across a winter-blasted, medieval landscape of fire and ice. Your heart will shiver and not just from the cold. An excellent novel..." -- Rickman Vantrease best-selling author of The Illuminator and The Mercy Seller "book recommendation"

She makes it all very human regardless of the time period..." -- Kathryn Le Veque (on author's book blog ) bestselling author of The Dark Lord and "Critic's blog post"
