Product description

Review

Intelligent, clearly written, and, perhaps inevitably, heart-rending ... Burge is rather in love with Heloise himself: she writes, thinks and feels exquisitely (Murragh O'Brien Independent on Sunday)

Burge opens up this tale with great sympathy and directness (Frances Spalding Daily Mail)

Burge is excellent at empathy. He keeps you alive to the agony of Abelard ... [and] makes a moving, likeable document of an extraordinary love. (Alice Ferrebe Scotland on Sunday)

The most striking part of the book is its modernity ... Burge achieves something truly difficult: he reminds us that, for Abelard and Heloise, their world was as new, risky and unpredictable as ours is. (Ann Wroe Sunday Times)

A great story (Douglas Johnson The Spectator)

About the Author
