Reviews

  • 'A compelling medieval fable, written from the heart and melded to a driving narrative which never once loses its tremendous pace'

    Guardian
  • 'An irresistible blend of intellect and passion'

    Mail on Sunday
  • 'This remarkable novel resembles an illuminated manuscript mapped with angels and mountains and signposts, an allegory for today and yesterday too. A beautiful, unsettling moral fiction about virtue and intolerance'

    Observer
  • 'Remarkable...Utterly absorbing...richly detailed and finely imagined'

    Sunday Telegraph
  • 'The lucidity of Jill Paton Walsh's style and the dexerity of the narrative are such that her book reads more like a good thriller than a weighty novel of ideas...An ingenious fable'

    The Times
