This well researched creation is a fascinating, well constructed and moving story in a convincingly evocative historical setting. It holds the reader right from the start. I hope the author will continue writing.

Five celestial stars for 'The Dove of Montségur'. I have read many books about the Cathars and, in particular, the siege of Montségur and never fail to be moved and inspired by the Parfaits, the Perfects or the Goodmen, as they are called here. The brutal repression of this faith of love and healing is an enduring tragedy, especially as it was carried out by other so called followers of the teaching in the Gospel of John to 'love one another.'

Sibilia is a truly sympathetic main character, a child when the story begins, a child living inside a fortress, the little dove of Montségur. Despite her young age, she is entrusted with a secret.... and has an important role to play.

The writing style is plain and straightforward but this only emphasizes the intensity of the events described. I was delighted to discover that the story continues in 'Dante's Gift', now ready and waiting on my kindle. Inspirational work, Leitha Martin!

What an amazing book 5 Stars all the way!
I learnt so much about the terrible persecution of the Cathars. Why oh why do some men take it upon themselves to destroy what they do not understand and cannot control for their own means

This offers a valuable insight into life on the Pog, particularly for anyone planning to climb up it. In fact, it's probably essential reading for them. I certainly wish I had read it before making the journey a couple of months ago. Some of the dialogue comes over as rather stilted but the re-creation of life in the very unusual circumstances is effective. The particular slant on the nature of the Cathars' treasure has considerable merit as well.
