well written, well researched, charming...but i am going back to the painter, with the happy end...
The second book, IN PURSUIT OF THE GREEN LION, is a roller coaster ride to make Dan Brown jelous with envy. Anyone who likes Dan Brown books should read this.
It tells the story of Margaret of Ashbury in 14th century England, who is gifted with a power to heal - a dangerous ability in these times. The story is full of unexpected twists and turns.
The book is followed by two sequels (one so far only published in German?), but the story is complete in itself.
"A vision of light" is sometimes advertised as a romance, but in my eyes it is not. I am only an amateur but to me the historical background seems a lot better researched than is standard for a fiction book. But J.M. Riley brings the medieval world to life so wonderfully and draws believable character portraits. I would like to name "A Vision of Light" one of the best historical novels I have ever read.
