Saskia grew up in rural England in a part of the world the Industrial Revolution forgot.
Surrounded by medieval churches, crumbling castles and an empty landscape in which bustling medieval communities once thrived, Saskia's imagination was filled with the men and women who had once lived and loved there.

Melisende's story will be published in March 2014.
