A very gripping, very well written historical fiction novel that takes us back to religious upheaval in Henry VIII's time. Survival, tension, romance and tragedy all unfold to keep you reading on. I could not put the book down! Excellent read and a very worthy winner!
Award winning historical fiction at it's best. A tale of romance, death, religious zealots and social upheaval. A must read for anyone interested in serious literary fiction. 5 stars.*****
