Damp and dastardly.
on 11 April 2017
So enjoyed this story, as much for its twists and turns as for its horribly vivid description of life in the Middle Ages. Peddlars, magicians, and thieves abound, all vying for the coins of the terrified and the desperate. Lies are as valuable as gold to some and I didn't guess the main protagonists secret, even as I read the last pages.
Right, off to purchase another book by Karen Maitland.
