• Enthralling... A spectacular tale told with spectacular accomplishment

    Peter Kemp, Sunday Times, *Books of the Year*
  • [An] astonishing tale… The main narrative is told in a pressing, insistent present tense and Hertmans conjures up the medieval world with the same sensuous detailing that was so effective in War and Turpentine… tense and compelling… The Covert is…extraordinarily good

    Sunday Times
  • An imaginative flight, full of darkness and light, lively characters, life-altering conflicts, violence and kindness

    Valerie Martin, New York Times
  • Written in an often breathless, continuous present tense, Hamoutal’s experiences are visualised following Herman’s own groudbreaking researches… David McKay’s translation is as brilliant as it is frequently brutal, and intermittently lyrical

    Jewish Chronicle
  • Nearly a millennium later, Hamoutal has been remembered and honored

    Sam Sacks, Wall Street Journal
