REVIEWERS ARE SAYING:
“There are so many things to like about this story...The plot is well developed, and I particularly liked the attention to historical detail along the way. This...author...does her homework, and it shows. I was intrigued by this story...a cracking good yarn."
–Shelagh Merlin, NetGalley Reviewer
“The pace is fast, there’s plenty of action and adventure and a few twists I didn’t see coming. Lizzi Tremayne writes good characters, and that definitely includes the horses. For me, though, it’s the history that’s the star in this story. Good characters plus excellent history equals a great read, which is what this is.”
–Deborah Challinor, number one bestselling author and historian
