I've just got The Traitor's Wife by Kathleen Kent - I really enjoyed The Heretic's Daughter.
I was very taken with The Heretic's Daughter as well. Traitor's Wife has a different US title doesn't it? Wish they wouldn't do that :(

Just checked -memory's shot- US title is The Wolves of Andover.

The Art and Illustration of Walter Crane
I've always loved Cran'e illustrations- bought this online with some Xmas money.

I wish they wouldn't alter titles, too - it can be very confusing.

I enjoyed it too. We read it for our book group recently and most of us loved it. I hope to read the prequel some day soon.

This wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be and they got a few historical facts wrong! :P

That's always good, if it's cheap then it doesn't hurt so bad if it's bad.
