Top Customer Reviews
Incidentally, I contacted the author via her website with a question about the book not realising it was fully answered in the author's note at the end. She gave me a prompt and very courteous reply which was much appreciated.
As soon as you open this book you are immediately transported into the 14th Century and get to know each of the character’s, whose lives, we find, are intertwined.
It’s an excellent story told by each of the characters in turn and it flows beautifully. It’s well thought out, Karen Maitland gives you just enough in each chapter to make you hunger for a little more.
There are elements of witchcraft which are well-suited to this era, but don't worry, it’s not unbelievable hocus-pocus for the sake of it, it’s a subtly woven thread which in the end makes it a truly marvellous read. There’s so much more depth to this story than you first realise – in fact, there’s quite a conspiracy going on…
And there’s an extra special bit at the very end that I didn’t know about before I purchased the book: you’ll find a small glossary of terms appropriate of that time, plus a historical summary / breakdown of the Peasant’s Revolt which is pretty interesting and a nice touch which makes the world you’ve just become engrossed in seem all that little more ‘real’.

Maitland is a most excellent story teller. One becomes totally absorbed.Published 1 month ago by Jane
Having previously read The Company Of Liars and The Owl Killers I would count myself a fan of Karen Maitland and this book reinforces that. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Peter
