5.0 out of 5 stars History brought to life 18 Mar 2012
I really love historical novels but I don't like them to be all battles and bodice ripping. When I saw this book on Kindle I liked the idea that it was about an ordinary person rather than a king or lord, and when I read it it really ticked all my boxes. There was adventure and romance (but not too much) and a villain that you could almost like. Another thing I liked was that I learnt things about a period of history I don't know well, but didn't feel like I was reading a textbook. All in all I thought this a great read and I've since read the reviews on Amazon for Sarah Pernell's other book (The Gift and the Promise). I sounds really good so I hope it will be available on Kindle soon.
