Eighteen-year-old Rebecca Lennox, daughter of a former priest, is ostracized by the villagers of Dunmow. They regard her as cursed, by both her cleft palate and her gift of second sight.

Γιώτα Παπαδημακοπούλου
Έχει περάσει σχεδόν ένας χρόνος από τότε που βρέθηκα τελευταία φορά στο "Παζάρι Του Βιβλίου" που κάθε χρόνο λαμβάνει χώρα στην πλατεία Κλαυθμώνος, στην Αθήνα. Πάντα βρίσκω ενδιαφέροντα και αξιόλογα βιβλία ανάμεσα σε εκείνα του σωρού όμως μπορώ να πω με βεβαιότητα, ότι η τελευταία μου επίσκεψη, ήταν και η πιο δύσκολη.

Libro preso in prestito dal moroso, in quanto ultimamente la mia libreria in camera scarseggia di titoli nuovi.
In copertina c'è scritto che è un thriller storico, ma di thriller non ha nulla e di storico men che meno.

Starting in Dunmow, ending in Rome by way of Russia.
A fast-moving, often gory, tale of religious fanatics and the supernatural.
An engaging, vigorous style makes this an easy, if occasionally uncomfortable read.
Any medieval history lover would love any books by this author.
