My reviewof this one is up at the Historical Novel Society's website. (Scroll to the third book.) There's an interesting variety of new HF represented in the list there.

I just started this last night. It's quite breezy. I didn't expect that. boswellbaxter, your review is spot on. I'm also re-reading as I go.

I read it. I'd say 4/5. Quick, interesting concept, a bit of trying to figure out how the story's going to play out (which I enjoy).

This one's on my mental TBR. I really enjoyed Mr Timothy by this author
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

I've been really wanting to read this one. Some nonfiction I've read on M.A. and family highlighted the harrowing prison times for that boy, and the horrible accusations made about her and him incestuously. Poor kid.
