I know its cheesy to use the title as a descriptive word in your review but Sile has woven a rich tapestry of images emersing you in the wetlands of the past, complete with the agony of being an outcast in a superstitious time and culminating in the Battle of Hastings. I loved it. My only comment contrary is that the sexual imagery was a bit much. I could never recommend it to my churchy friends.
