In the best tradition of the romantic adventure and breathtaking scenery of Sarah Donati and Diana Gabaldon, Gleeson takes the reader through a compelling and riveting plot that will linger past the last page.
….Gleeson leaves us with a memorable and poignant love story and a vision of a wonderful culture, unique in my experience of literature.
Karen Charlton, author of The Detective Lavender series
The underlying sexual tension is all the more powerful for the beautifully restrained writing, which makes the slightest touch electric; a medicinal massage becomes a moment of physical communion…. This is what Kristin Gleeson does best; portraying different cultures and showing how humanity can cross them.
