Roger Draper is a curious priest, and when he hears of a hoopoe for sale in the local market he smells sorcery. But when he takes the constable to investigate and finds the offending bird in the hands of his beloved Margery, Roger is in a quandary.

The tale now involves a sturdy beggar, a missing book of spells, a church inquisitor and a good deal of drink taken by the constable, before reaching a satisfactory conclusion. An enjoyable story, neatly plotted and characterised and well worth a read.

Short read, but well done. 25 Dec. 2012

It is always interesting when you put a normal guy in a situation that has the potential to get out of hand. I would like to see the story continued. There is more to learn from the from the characters.

A little quick read, good if you want to just pick up and read something before you go to sleep, or need a book fix. Love this work, very well written and paced, I look forward to more by this author.

A humorous tale of a naive clergyman in Medieval times. Roger could not be more bumbling than he apparently is. This tale shows the ins and outs of remaining anomalous in society. Great fun!Bird Talk: A Tale of Medieval Magic

Pleasant surprise 1 Sept. 2012

This was a quick read, being a relatively short book. I wasn't quite sure what to expect but gave it a try, and was pleasantly surprised.
