A brilliant 1st novel, well worth reading. Rosemary Griggs obviously put much time and thought into researching the people and places associated with the central character, weaving a colourfully poignant story around historical records. The book breathes life into places that I now want to revisit. The nobility relationships with their religious and political struggles gave great insight to the events and background to famous names. Can't wait for her next novel.
