Format: Hardcover
Kathyrn Swinbrooke, physician, herbalist, and leech, makes this period piece seem like a series of anachronisms, but it's well worth the time to delve into this exciting Medieval mystery by one of my favorite authors P.C. Dougherty writing as C.L. Grace. The author is able, due to his expertise in this period of English history (he holds a doctorate from Oxford), to make his tales sound genuine and forthcoming. It's interesting, too, to see him portray Edward IV and Queen so vividly and, with a keen sense of awareness, gives us an insight into the Future King, Richard Duke of Gloucester. Little does Edward realize his short lived tenure!
A good read!

I think that your book is very wonderful so I will pay you 35.6 billion dollars for 135 the copis of it. I would like this to be a reasonable offer. I hope that you approve to it.
Sincerly, Bill Clinton

HASH(0x9cab1c18) out of 5 stars Interesting historical mystery 13 May 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This series has an unusual protagonist and so introduces the reader to an almost unknown part of history - that of women doctors in the Middle Ages. This is sometimes more interesting than the plot. I wish Katherine and Colum would get together soon though!

HASH(0x9c8e99fc) out of 5 stars The Book of Shadows 28 Oct. 2010
By Dorothy H. Wagner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
C L.Grace, Paul Doherty, does it again. Paul's depiction of Medieval Society is unsurpassed and his characters very believable. I don't think there is an author since Chaucer that has given us such a living, breathing (stinking) example of life in this era; good story, good characterization and a mystery as well. THE BOOK OF SHADOWS is just another of his excellent body of work.
