Brilliant historical construction ( Evening News)
Miss Seton's enthusiasm for both character and period is infectious. Katherine emerges a glowing, vital figure (Daily Telegraph)
'A great adventure, powerfully told' (Philippa Gregory)
'Anya Seton takes us into other worlds, making us live for a few hours on a grand scale' (Women's Journal )
'wonderful historical novels' (Alison Weir)

The only thing I would really have liked would have been a bit more of an historical note at the end, in the style of Sharon Penman, giving a little more information on some of the characters and events. There is some of this in the introduction, for example on the existence of Blanchette, but I feel it would have been better at the end and enlarged on slightly. The only biography I have seen available on Katherine Swynford has been very short, and Seton says most of what we know of her is from where her life intersects with that of John of Gaunt, so I would be interested in knowing how Seton surmised other events she depicts, and her reasoning on decisions on the fate of Blanchette who has seemingly not been acknowledged by all historians.
