From the Author
Praise from other authors
I am thrilled that the paperback of A YEAR AND A DAY is everywhere you look and is doing so well. Bertrice Small said, "Virginia Henley writes the kind of book you simply can't stop reading. I was up till dawn devouring A YEAR AND A DAY." Chistina Skye said, "If you liked BRAVEHEART, you'll love A YEAR AND A DAY...No one sets fire to the page like Virginia Henley." Publishers Weekly said: "Steamy sex, memorable characters, bloody battles, nicely paced narrative." A couple of readers reviews said I used modern slang. "Cut to the chase" is an ancient hunting expression. In my previous book on Scotland, I used a lot of dialect and thick Scottish brogues which some readers found hard to read. This time, since both the hero and Robert Bruce were educated in England, I didn't use much dialect. I want to thank the readers for the success of this book. It is most gratifying!
