Right, off to purchase another book by Karen Maitland.
These people are all hiding a dark secret each (some of the secrets are a lot more boring than others) and this leads to problems as they trudge around England in the rain, getting more and more frightened.
The group seems to spend a lot of time being wet and hunting for food (every chapter it seems) and only after finishing the book, did I realise that not a lot had happened. The ending also seems to come to an unsatifactory and somewhat rushed conclusion with everything coming to a head in about 10 pages.
The story is well written however and you can tell that the author has put a lot of time and effort into research to get little details about the period correct.

Excellent read. All Karen Maitland medieval reads are terrific. This one is possibly the best but would also recommend Gallows Curse and The Owl Killers. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Miss T.
